Ask for a window seat in the Tavern Room as you can just about see the Hudson River across the West Side Highway. The food in the tavern comes from the same as the main dining room — like at Gramercy Tavern — but the with à la carte service not a prix fixe, multi-course menu.
To start, we shared one of their thin-crusted pizzas covered with a layer of hand-smashed, peeled fire-roasted with garlic and thyme tomatoes and topped with chunks of fennel sausage, smoked mozzarella and fresh broccoli rabe ($18). That could have been a meal in itself.
For entrees, we sampled tender yet crispy pork belly ($23) atop roasted mushrooms and delicate gnocci in a smoked maple jus. Plus, the roast “Denver” steak over cipollini onions, potatoes and a ramp vinaigrette ($23), and roasted skate in brown butter with whipped potatoes and broccoli. (22)
Our bottles of jammy Cabernet Sauvignon ($75) Arbios 2006 Alexander Valley with it’s dry nose and spicy mineral tones and went well with all.
