30 years of great meals, but an unpolished, indifferent bartender tarnished my latest visit. He was too busy discussing his latest Broadway show with a fellow employee to be bothered with customer service. Comments such as “how was that one?”, referring to an appetizer, added...More

While in NYC, Gotham Bar & Grill is a must. Classic New York style, and everything is good on the menu. One of the best cocktail menus in the city, and fantastic service.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

My friend, we drank a tremendous amount of vino. I can't remember. Don't go cheap, you'll spoil your evening.

This is a busy restaurant and if you eat at peak dining hours there will be some noise; nevertheless, you can hold a conversation with people across the table from you. Try asking for a corner table
