An “evergreen” NYC dining experience since 1984, this “glorious” Villager showcases chef Alfred Portale’s “towering” New American “art on a plate” delivered by “finely orchestrated” staffers in a “sophisticated”, “white-tablecloth” setting; sure, it’s “costly”, but “you get what you pay for” and the $34 greenmarket lunch is an “unbeatable” deal.
The Gotham Bar and Grill opened its doors in 1984 and, decades later, it simply refuses to get stale. With chef Alfred Portale's outstanding skill and dedication in the kitchen gracefully standing the test of time, it holds one star from Michelin, three from the New York Times and, in 2009, New York Magazine hailed it as one of the most important New York restaurants of the past 40 years. The menu still includes tried-and-true favorites from Portale's "vertical cuisine" phase in the 1980s, such as tuna tartare served on a bed of thinly-sliced cucumbers dotted with miso vinaigrette. And his classic rack of lamb is as prominent in the dining room as well-suited executives, New School professors and celebrated literati. If these regulars have filled up the tables, you can belly up and dine at the bar — a concept that Gotham pioneered and perfected back in the day. Then, there's the wine list, which remains one of the many reasons why cityfolk come here when they need a fail-safe spot to impress a guest. Just ask President Obama where he prefers to hold his swank fundraising dinners when he's in New York.
