Opened by celebrated restaurateur Danny Meyer and chef Tom Colicchio in 1994, and helmed since 2006 by executive chef-partner Michael Anthony, who was named Best Chef New York City by the James Beard Foundation in 2012, Gramercy Tavern is an institution. From its fiercely seasonal cooking, which relies on local farmers' market ingredients (and always has--long before it was fashionable to do so), to its welcoming and convivial atmosphere that feels like an extension of one's home, Gramercy single-handedly updated and revived the notion of the American tavern and changed the way this country eats. The 125 recipes and 200 photographs will inspire home cooks to make memorable meals by highlighting the intense flavors of simple ingredients at their peak. Fans everywhere will delight in the behind-the-scenes photos and essays that invite everyone to bring home a bit of the magic of this dining destination.
