Gotham Bar & Grill
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.
