Opening its doors in in 1984 along a tree-lined stretch of the fabled Greenwich Village neighborhood, Gotham was the vision of four New Yorkers from diverse backgrounds. Jerry Kretchmer, Jeff Bliss, Rick Rathe and Robert Rathe set out to create a downtown restaurant reminiscent of the energy, feel and beauty of a Parisian brasserie. Breaking with convention the restaurant was designed to be lively, inclusive and approachable which proved a winning formula as the restaurant was an immediate downtown sensation. One year later the Gotham team determined to upgrade its menu, enlisted the talent of a young, unknown Chef, Alfred Portale. Portale would bring the cuisine to a new level and together Gotham and Portale have proven a winning duo with critics and patrons alike.

In 2010 the New York Times awarded Gotham its fifth three-star review, a distinction achieved by no other New York restaurant. In 2009 New York Magazine named Gotham one of the most important New York City restaurants of the past forty years. Since 2005 the restaurant has maintained a one star Michelin rating and the restaurant is consistently highly ranked in the annual Zagat Guide. The restaurant has also collected three James Beard Awards including the prestigious Award as Outstanding Restaurant in the nation in 2002, and in 2006 Chef Portale was named Outstanding Chef in the nation.

The restaurant’s wine program has evolved over the years as well, earning the respect of many top wine makers who share rare and hard-to-obtain vintages and small production wines. The result is a vast and varied cellar making Gotham Bar and Grill an essential wine destination.

In addition to the consistent quality of food and service, Gotham’s uncommon longevity can be attributed to the tireless efforts of Portale and partners who continuously evolve the menu, dining room, service standards and art collection (Gotham contracts its own curator). All with the objective of maintaining Gotham’s vibrant and beloved guest experience.

The ideal spot for any occasion, Gotham Bar and Grill serves dinner seven nights a week, and serves lunch Monday through Friday, when the room is awash in bright sunlight, and the restaurant offers its legendary prix fixe lunch menu, an institution unto itself and one of New York City’s great values.
