Gramercy Tavern is a New York classic and I had been wanting to go and check it out for quite some time. Yes, it is nice to know what is new but it is also important to see what has been working for years. Gramercy Tavern is one of those placdes which makes you feel like you are right in a Woody Allen movie. The people, the ambiance, the decoration all screams Woody and I have to say that I loved it.
As for the layout of the restaurant; there are two dining options. As you enter you encounter the more informal “tavern” with a cocktail bar and then further inside you find the more formal dining room. When you try the food you quickly understand that there is a know-how acquired over time and perfected with years of experience. They prepare both fish and meats not to mention vegetables and the flavors are delicate and elegant.
Let me simply show you some of their dishes so you can get a feel, such as the warm lobster salad.
