Had a wonderful time celebrating a very good friend’s birthday at Gramercy Tavern! I haven’t been here in years and am glad to be back. We all loved the Seasonal Tasting Menu, comprised of six bright, beautiful, and elegant courses. Most memorable dishes for me: the poached hake and the duck breast. Both were perfectly cooked, incredibly tender, and full of flavor. What a lovely meal!
