Watching a video of the chefs from the Gramery Tavern carefully selecting produce from the Greenmarket in NYC. is to realize what great care is taken in preparation for the dining hour. It has always been a concern that the best produce of the region reach the menu and tables of the restaurant. Wheeling loaded carts a few blocks to the kitchen is the process that is used to guarantee this, and the colors and freshness of the food is unrivaled.
Established in 1994 as a Danny Meyers restaurant with an all American theme, it is recognized as one of the best higher priced restaurants of the city. In 2013, THE GRAMERCY TAVERN COOKBOOK (Clarkson Potter) was published and includes a collection of recipes from Chef Michael Anthony. This concept of “food from farm to table” has made the menu famous.
In addition, the décor has also found fame within a few city blocks. Nearby are the art studios of Robert Kushner, well known contemporary American artist. When Anthony dropped by his studio, he immediately recognized that he wanted some of this man’s art for the restaurant walls. For the next year, Kushner worked on 8 full sized panels which was a Cornucopia of the bright colors of the area’s fresh vegetables. When installed, it transformed the restaurant and has brought its own fame to be viewed while dining.
