New York City's Best Hotels

Gramercy Tavern Hotel
New York is the restaurant capital of the country, may be even the world. Dining options run the gamut, from small, out of the way ethnic eateries to formal French temples of gastronomy. You can spend $5 on dinner or $500 and some of the better restaurants offer real deals at lunch. When they are accepted, reservations are essential when they are not you may have to wait. Don't fret. In general though not always a long line augurs a good experience.

Daniel: Open the lengthy, predominantly, French, prix fixe only menu to being one of the most memorable meals available in Manhattan today. Choose from modern classics such as cashew nut crusted venison with braised red cabbage and sweet potato puree. The service is fittingly excellent. The neo-Renaissance dining room provides an extremely formal setting; dinner in the lounge is a more relaxed experience.

Gramercy Tavern: Gramercy Tavern Hotel is urbanely rustic restaurant is divided into two rooms - the first come first served tavern in front offers a light menu. Some choices are prepared in the wood burning oven while you watch. The more formal but still intimidating dining room in the back features a carefully conceived American table d'hotel menu. Friendly service and a dessert menu that rivals any in the city complete the experience.
