Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Michael Anthony's Midtown Manhattan Gramercy Tavern has stellar credentials: It's been a six-time winner of Zagat's "New York City's Most Popular Restaurant" and a six-time James Beard Award recipient, with one honoring Anthony himself as the best chef. This illustrated cookbook exudes the Gramercy's winning ingredients of informal tavern atmosphere and good eats. The latter are in high abundance: 125 recipes of restaurant fare shaped to fit home cook needs. As soothing, warm, and rewarding as the famed restaurant itself.

Publishers Weekly
Meyer (owner of Union Square Cafe Hospitality Group Restaurants and author of Setting the Table) and Anthony (former executive chef at Blue Hill at Stone Barns) have created a restaurant that epitomizes the concept of tavern as the crossroads of a neighborhood’s flavor, food, and folks. Their shared high standards for resourcing the freshest unprocessed and local ingredients have forged a partnership supporting the vision of an urban culinary community, and this cookbook presents recipes designed to bring the warmth of the Gramercy Tavern to the home cook. With fare that reflects the “buoyant tone” and “just dropped in” atmosphere of the tavern and dining room, the authors encourage cooks to approach their restaurant recipes as inspirational points of departure to produce dishes that “look great by virtue of the beauty of the ingredients.” Signature tavern cocktails are followed by recipes organized by season, from appetizers through main dishes to desserts. Spring features combinations of peas, ramps, pickled vegetables, and fish, along with a first-of-the-season berries rhubarb streusel tart with strawberry ice cream. For summer, there are chilled zucchini and corn soups, char and bass dishes, and heirloom tomato tarts; autumn showcases fresh pasta and grilled pole beans, chorizo, and mussels; and winter offers cured meats, roasted pork and big cookies for the holidays. Home cooks can now step inside the tavern kitchen with these 125 recipes. Agent: David Black, David Black Agency. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
"Gramercy Tavern, the cozy-but-chic mainstay on East 20th Street, exudes so much wood-fired warmth that it qualifies as downtown's pied-a-terre. It's where you want to loaf and linger—and keep eating. The new Gramercy Tavern Cookbook pays tribute to that accomplishment and, of course, to its chef, Michael Anthony, and his deeply and deliciously American fare, like roasted oysters and apple pie, and monkey bread and bacon Cheddar biscuits." -The New York Times

"At least as suitable for coffee-table display as any of those volumes, The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook is the one to bestow upon loved ones who actually want to spend time at the stove. Chef Michael Anthony translates his contemporary-classic dishes into user-friendly recipes fit for weeknight suppers as well as festive meals, while the tale of the nearly 20-year-old Manhattan restaurant unfolds in accompanying anecdotes." -The Wall Street Journal
 

"By design, it lets you into the chef’s imagination, teaches composition, and frees you to think about ways to reintegrate high quality basics." -Esquire

"With its generous size and mouthwatering photographs, it looks like a coffee table fixture, but this book from the famed Manhattan restaurant is meant for true home cooking. Corn soup with honey and a julienne of shiso leaves, earthy mushroom lasagne topped with crispy garlic, and other recipes are as approachable as they are elegant." -Saveur

“After twenty years, Danny Meyer's beloved New York restaurant Gramercy Tavern finally got a cookbook, and it was worth the wait. Chef Michael Anthony wrote a slightly upscale version of an all-purpose cookbook, this is your go-to for dressed up chicken soup, carrot cake, braised pork, seafood chowder, homemade pasta and more.” –Eater.com

"All of these food experts seem determined to impart their accumulated wisdom to interested readers and aspiring chefs, demystifying the cuisines they specialize in and placing them within reach of home cooks. Sidebars in Michael Anthony's Gramercy Tavern Cookbook, for example, read like notes from a professor in the margins of a term paper." -The Village Voice
 

"Restauranteur Danny Meyer's Gramercy Tavern is a perennial favorite; the book is full of seasonal hits like seafood chowder with squash for fall." -Food Network Magazine

"The recipes are interspersed with super-useful sections on pickling, pan-roasting fish, making pie crust and more instruction from the earnest, encouraging chef-educator." -Food and Wine
 

"Michael Anthony's beloved farm-to-table recipes are featured along with profiles of the unsung people behind the celebrated New York restaurant." -Details

    A wonderful book!

    This is an amazing cookbook, a delight to read and even more impressive as a cookbook. I agree with others ... once it is opened, it is impossible to put down. It is an absolute treasure I would recommend highly to anyone.

    Great for home cooks, a must for aspiring young chefs.

    I have been fortunate to eat at the tavern many times over the year when in New York City. I know the food, I know the staff and the ambience. When I shopped the Union Square Market, I would follow the restaurant buyers to see what they bought.
    This book is beautiful visually as well as practical for recipes, tips and table decorations. It is an investmant that is well worth it if you are a foodie.
