Gotham Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Gotham Bar & Grill has been a mainstay of the New York dining scene for more than 30 years, in great part due to chef Alfred Portale's architectural presentations, creative techniques and intense flavors. Helming the kitchen here are his trusted disciples Jacinto Guadarrama and Livio Velardo. Start off by ordering "market selections" like oysters with pink peppercorn or indulge with ravioli stuffed with braised veal shank and sheep's milk ricotta. Trademark dishes like coq au vin can be found alongside seasonal fare such as Nova Scotia halibut with cauliflower, shiitake mushrooms and green grapes; or duck choucroute with seared foie gras and pear compote. Desserts include the signature chocolate cake, coconut ginger coupe, and smoked ricotta cheesecake. The wine list, overseen by wine director Eric Zillier, offers many bottles from smaller American boutique wineries. While Gotham might at times be overshadowed by newer, up-to-the-minute eateries, this downtown power spot with its soaring ceilings, billowy light shades and casually airy feel remains a favorite.
