Gotham Bar & Grill

12 E.12th St.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 620-4020

A Greenwich Village institution since 1984, the James Beard Award-winning Gotham Bar & Grill is an ever-evolving landmark, consistently introducing new seasonal dishes and updating the 20,000-bottle wine cellar. The high-ceilinged space is designed with oversize windows, white fabric chandeliers, and rotating artwork selected by the restaurant’s own curator. Created by executive chef Alfred Portale, long considered a pioneer of contemporary American cuisine, the menu may include such popular dishes as seafood salad with avocado lemon vinaigrette and grilled rack of lamb with Swiss chard, potato purée, and lamb reduction. Gotham also has a relatively affordable lunchtime prix fixe menu.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

In a hotel of the same name near Buckingham Palace, The Goring was recently made over by the Queen's nephew, designer David Linley. Now it's glitzy, with handmade cabinets and Swarovski crystal chandeliers, but the traditional English food is still terrific, and the cellar is still one of the best in London, especially when it comes to Bordeaux and Burgundy.

We loved: Lobster omelet; ribs of beef from the cart.
