Gramercy Tavern

At work, the our HRIS team from London was visiting that week, and those days in particular, so I could not take days off for our fifth wedding anniversary (July 2012). Hear me, I am not crazy about these hyped multiples of five celebrations. But I love to travel, and this would have been an easy chance to get away without having multiple fights with the H, as is usually the case. Am I complaining, no! :)

So, food being my other love, I decided to spend nice evenings out for fancy dinners. At the end, it turned out to be only two evenings, since we both were busy at work, and had returned only that Sunday after 5 days of a road trip with friends.

Gramercy Tavern was the first evening. What a superb place. From the decor to the bathroom to the food to the service. I was just bowled over.

We were seated in the fancy dining area – I got us reservations for 6 pm, which was such great news for me. I love early dinners. But, you can absolutely walk in to be seated at their more casual but equally gorgeous lounge area.

So began our dinner.

After leaving from there, we for the first time in our history of being in NYC for 5 years got touristy pictures taken in front of the Flatiron with Empire State behind us :)

Gobble Up!  Given a chance, would I visit again, yes.  Probably their tavern this time.
