        thanks, did you get a pre-fix lunch or dinner?

          I have gotten both the pre-fixe dinner and the tasting menu. Both were absolutely fantastic. Gotham Bar and Grill is a wonderful place and never disappoints me. One of my favorite establishments.

            I have to agree. It flies totally under the radar because it isn't the next new thing or even the most recent new thing, but I have had consistently good meals there. The last time that I was there for dinner I had the best tuna tartar that I have ever had.

        the lovely MsMargaret and I had dinner at GB&G last night...superb in every aspect. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived, so they bought us a prosecco at the bar. elegant start. when we did get seated--side-by-side, facing the room from a banquet, another elegant touch--we ordered a la carte:
        herself: seared foie gras with an Oregon Pinot Noir; seared Halibut with a white wine (Falanghina) from the Campagna region).
        myself smoked sea trout with that Italian white; and roasted duck with a Rhone-style red from Italy (Sangiovese/Merlot blend).
        together: a melon ice cream sundae.
        every bite, it seemed like there was something new on the tongue; service was efficient and unobtrusive, our waiter was attentive in a good way, answered many-many questions, etc. etc., the other diners were interesting to look at and aside from a job interview, I'm pretty sure, to my right (the guy who did ALL the talking probably didn't get it), we could hear that people were talking but not what they said.
        all together, a great experience.
        the nick? $215 for two plus a hefty tip.

          Nice review of a solid NYC restaurant that has continued to provide positive dining experiences throughout its existence.
          Not sure about a Sangiovese/merlot blend being Rhone-style though.

            RCC: good point on the wine identity. the waiter had said "Rhone-style," and (but?) the on-line menu identified the grapes as reported...in any case, it was wonderful....I'm considering changing the "best meal ever" entry in my profile.
            this is a copy-and-paste off said online menu: Sangiovese/Merlot "Muschén" Selvagrossa Marche, Italy
