Chef Joey Campanaro reviews Grilled rack of lamb at Gotham Bar and Grill
$$$$ | Modern | American
Union Square
"On any given Sunday night, you'll probably see me at the bar gnawing on some of chef Adam Longworth's perfectly cooked American lamb served with Swiss chard, roasted cipollini and potato purée. This restaurant is an NYC classic."
Chef Michael Lomonaco reviews Yellowfin tuna tartare at Gotham Bar and Grill
$$$$ | Modern | American
Union Square
"Chef Alfred Portale's original tuna tartare is a New York classic, the dish that started it all. With Adam Longworth and Jacinto Guadarrama at the piano, Gotham B&G's menu is rich with vibrant flavors, colors, and forms. This restaurant has always been one of my favorite places to celebrate or relax at the bar with some pasta. It's fine dining without the fuss."
