When New York City’s iconic Gramercy Tavern opened its doors in 1994, it resulted in the renewal of the classic American tavern with a contemporary American cuisine and warm hospitality.

Today this one star Michelin eatery is known for its farm to table dishes, warm hospitality, and consummate service in a historic landmark building.

Gramercy Tavern Ambiance

The Gramercy Tavern offers a unique ambiance with early American antiques displayed throughout the rooms. Even the bricks used for the wood burning oven were created in the last existing American foundry to cut bricks by hand.

Murals by artist Robert Kushner decorate the walls and are complemented with vivid floral arrangements by Roberta Bendavid, and the glow of candles from copper sconces.

A Celebration of Foods

Executive Chef Mike Anthony is committed to local produce and is inspired by the seasons. Anthony cooks from the heart using fresh ingredients purchased locally at the greenmarket.

It’s all about celebrating food and getting people to discover more about food…creating a better diversity of foods. What I like to do is emphasize the connection. The way we can sell luxury is reinforcing this connection with food that’s full of energy that’s as seductive as ever but really focuses on ingredients that are locked into our culture here.

A nice selection of homey and seasonal desserts created by Pastry Chef Nancy Olson are the perfect conclusion to any meal.

Private Dining

If you’re visiting New York City with a group, the Gramercy Tavern also offers a private dining room in an intimate space that can seat up to 22 people. This warm but elegant room offers a single stately table set beneath a wood-beamed ceiling and rustic chandeliers with more American antiques and art completing the dĂ©cor.

The Gramercy Tavern is known for the food, but also for service that’s professional but friendly. This is one stop worth making when visiting New York City. For more information, visit their website.
