Why did we dine here? – Gotham Bar & Grill has been around since 1984 and is considered an institution of fine dining. One Michelin Star, 4.5 stars on Yelp. We decided to see if it lives up to the hype. The older set in the 40’s to 60’s were dining.

Cuisine – American
Location – NYC West Village

Verdict – Gotham Bar & Grill lives up to its billing. The food is excellent as was the service. Timeless American Cuisine done right.

Beware: We did get seated in no-mans land, so there is definitely some stuffiness here.
