Located on 42 E 20TH Street in the Flatinor district of the Manhattan area, New York (View Map) this restaurant is one of the finest dining places that I have ever had the privilege of sampling. It has two amazing dining experiences; the Dining Room and the Tavern. The restaurant patrons have the option of making a reservation as well as a walk-in service. The founder of the hotel is the legendary restaurateur Danny Meyer, and it was opened in 1994. It sits in a significant landmark building. It has a great design that was created Bentel & Bentel, Roberta Bendavid gives it its fresh floral arrangements and the murals were done by renowned artist Robert Kushner; These features alone, sets it apart from your normal hotel within Manhattan.
When I moved to Manhattan a year ago, Gramercy Tavern Hotel was the talk of the town for its exemplary service not to mention mouthwatering and carefully prepared dishes. That is why I had to have a taste of its hospitality.
A month after I had moved in, I convinced my friend to take me to the hotel; from the entry to getting a sitting space, we received the best service as compared to the most walk in restaurants around. We chose to sit at the Tavern. Pizza is my favorite any day, and so we made our orders as we sipped a Pinot Noir red wine as recommended by our server. Indeed she was right; the wine was smooth and sweet just as we wanted it. Our pizza arrived on time and ooh boy! It smelled and tasted like nothing I had tasted before. I enjoyed every piece of the pizza. We almost ordered for another!
Since then, I pop in at the restaurant whenever I crave delicious pizza since it is just a short distance from where I live. Every time I go there, they never disappoint me. They serve hot pizza just the way I like it. The pizza includes diced jalapenos, vegetables, cheese, tomato sauce, and mushrooms. You can choose to take it down with a glass of Pinot Noir, Georges Descombes or even Rose wine like Triennes.
Michael Anthony and Danny Meyer are the Chefs you are likely to find at the restaurant any day. They work hard to ensure that you eat tasty meals whenever you come to the eatery. Other patrons at the restaurant love it for its chicken and steak.
The hotel’s client-oriented model is the one thing that makes Gramercy Tavern hotel different from all the other hotels in the Manhattan area. The service is five star and will make you want to visit again and again. The attendants are well groomed, polite and very helpful; they will ensure what you ordered is what you get, not to mention that everyone pays attention to detail.
I love every moment I am in this great hotel.
