$30 for $60 Worth of American Fusion Cuisine
Chefs craft a menu that sates lunchtime appetites with sandwiches and burgers ($10) or an opulent lunch prix fixe ($30/person; $15 for wine pairing). They also concoct dinner entrees such as seared duck breast with grilled peaches and blood-orange vinaigrette ($26) and baked macaroni with leeks and broccoli drenched in three cheeses ($15). Though the prix fixe menu changes its attire, it also makes an appearance at dinnertime ($45/person; $15 for wine pairing).
Giorgio's of Gramercy
The chefs at Giorgio's of Gramercy blend fresh salads, cook bountiful pastas, and grill seafood in elegant entrees that caused Time Out New York to remark that "For a restaurant with all the finery of a members-only spot … Giorgio’s is one of the more relaxed restaurants in Gramercy Park." The eatery's candle-strewn bar invites patrons to sip dozens of wines from around the world while surrounded by deep-red walls and luminous chandeliers. Giorgio's catering service delivers fresh dishes to gatherings of all kinds, from weddings to corporate events or weddings between two corporations.
