Lunch at Gramercy Tavern or Eleven Madison Park?

Chargenda Feb 4, 2010 11:32 AM

Which should I go for for a Friday lunch? Reservations for the date I want open up tomorrow. Suggestions? Sounds like either is a hot ticket that could be tough to nab, but what would be your top choice?

    Judging by dinners I've had at both, I'd head straight to Eleven Madison Park over Gramercy Tavern. Listen to RGR, the woman knows what she's talking about.

        This is an easy one to answer. EMP.

        Agreed 100%. EMP is a far better choice. EMP is my favorite place to lunch in the city.

          gos, There's a zero missing. lol

          My most disappointing meal of '09 took place in Gramercy Tavern's formal dining room. EMP is our favorite NYC restaurant. I think that about answers the question. :)
