Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Yellowfin tuna tartare
$$$$, Modern, American, New American, Greenwich Village
"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."
