Gotham Bar & Grill

Gotham Bar & Grill is an iconic New York restaurant that has been around for over 25 years. I am thrilled to finally try it, especially after reading about the yellowfin tuna tartare in Eater’s “Untouchables”. ┬áChef Alfred Portale has had this dish on the Gotham menu since the late ’80s, and it’s still as amazing as ever. Fresh, crisp, and delicate with a lovely presentation. ┬áThe miso marinated black cod was equally as delightful and beautiful. Added bonus for me: it came with sticky rice! :)
