Must try: Prix – Fixe, Mushroom Lasagna
Gramercy Tavern is one of those classic New York restaurants that has reached an echelon of distinction that very few others do.
Here, Restaurateur Danny Meyer’s and chef Michael Anthony – have created a niche for elevated tavern cuisine in an elegant yet cozy milieu.
Michael Anthony is unsurpassed in seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine. He deftly combines rustic elements of tavern cuisine with the clean flavors the green market. Just try the earthy mushroom lasagna or the freshness of the Ruby Red Shrimp Tasso.
