Danny Meyer's intensely popular restaurant tops many a New Yorker's list of favorite dining spots. In front, the first-come, first-served tavern has a lighter menu—including a value-packed three-course prix-fixe—along with great craft beers and cocktails scrawled on a board at the bar. The more formal dining room has a prix-fixe American menu, where choices include seasonal dishes such as marinated sea scallops with pickled peppers and fresh grapes, and rack of lamb with sunchokes, hazelnuts, and exotic mushrooms. Meyer's restaurants—he owns several well-regarded eateries in the city—are renowned for their food and hospitality, and Gramercy Tavern sets the standard.

Very surprised this restaurant is not on the Fodor's "favorite" list. It should be. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Specially liked the Papardelle with lamb ragu, it was incredible.

having avoided this place for a year, the NY Times Frank Bruni gave it a good review so went in this weekend and got a fairly simple and underdressed chicken breast plus a warm pineapple upsidedown cake and butter pecan icecream. Heaven.

Good appetizers, try the conrnish hen. Grilling with wood always contributes for a good flavor. Good beers also.
