Chef Nick Anderer reviews Smoked trout at Gramercy Tavern
$$$$ | Modern, | American

"Such an elegant preparation of trout and the best way I’ve ever eaten this fish, hands down. A skinless filet of pristine brook trout is slow-smoked to perfection and served on top of a sweet onion purée and a strike of pickled cippolini rings—sweet, tart, and super delicate all at once. It’s really one of the most expertly balanced dishes in NYC."
Chef Matthew Accarrino reviews Peanut butter & chocolate mousse at Gramercy Tavern

"I love Danny Meyer's quintessential New York restaurant. Chef Michael Anthony and team always fill the place with an almost overwhelming sense of hospitality. The casual tavern room is a great place for a late afternoon lunch."
