Gotham Bar & Grill Recs?

Gotham Bar & Grill gets a lot of love on this board. However, a search revealed few specific recommendations. Any advice for a first timer?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I would definitely go for the frisee salad with shitake mushrooms and goat cheese for a first course. I would also make sure to order the apricot crisp with goat cheese for the dessert. I had an amazing lunch here!

      I will be there this coming Sunday.
      Do they have any vegetarian dishes?

    2. The soft shell crabs I had there on my last visit may have been the best I've ever had.

      1. avoid - pretentious and completely overrated.

          Well, I am going to take this "pretentious" venue chance because I am crazy for great soft shell crab.

            I don't mean to put words in his/her mouth, but what I think wryorwhite meant to say is that s/he does not care for Gotham as much as some of the rest of us -- and perhaps does not care for it at all. Many of us, however, think it's great. Please report back after you go and let us know where you come out. It's still soft shell crab season; I hope they still have them!
