Time Out says

Chef-owner Alfred Portale made his name with towering New American constructions, and though the menu doesn’t push any boundaries, the execution is impressive—as is the restaurant’s soaring, masculine space. A beet and mango salad with fennel, red onions and feta at first sounds like any other upscale beet salad, but the beautifully simple dish—deep red and vibrant orange cubes with ribbons of shaved vegetables on a narrow, rectangular plate—has a presentation as sharp as its crystalline flavors. Juicy fried soft-shell crabs with morels, fresh peas, ramps and couscous is a thoroughly satisfying, borderline architectural tangle of bodies and legs. It’s pricey, but Gotham delivers.

Finally was able to come here for restaurant week and boy was this year's menu good. I did a three course prix fixe with my sister for lunch and it knocked our socks off. So much so that we got 3 of the restaurant week menu (3 appetizers, entrees and desserts). Left feeling super content and glad that I was able to snag a table. Beware, I could only get a reservation 2 weeks in advance so make sure you reserve ahead. Also, this is a fancy place so dress well. Each course is creative and beautiful and delicious. Stop by when you have a chance! Can't wait to be back to try dinner!

I live right around the corner, so Gotham Bar and Grill is a staple spot for me and my fiancé. I'm not a big meat eater, which is ironic that this place is a staple of ours since the menu weighs heavily toward meat, but when I am in the mood for it, this is our place to go. The duck here is by far the best duck dish I've ever had. Often times it can be overdone and greasy, but the dish here is tender and flavored to perfection. It's a little upscale, but not too formal to turn you away if you are walking in the neighborhood and looking for a place to stop for a quick bite. While it can be pretty packed, bar seating for dinner is often available and another way to enjoy the food in a more casual setting. 


Crisp, tasty menu - American creative served in an exceptionally clean layout by a fully qualified service staff. The decor and ambiance are carefully curated with clean sweeping lines and pristine attention to detail. Fully attentive wait staff complement this. The food is delicious, pricey and worth it.
