The Gotham Bar & Grill: hope it is still around.

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties 01238708

It has been at least 27 years since Diane, and I have been to the Gotham Bar & Grill in New York City. We both loved the dining experience, and I followed Alfred Portale's Cookbook publishing ever since.

I am proud to say I have three of his cookbooks. Sad to say none are autographed.

I have made a few recipes from each of his books over the decades. Now with that said I am inspired to make a few more of his dishes.

OH WOW! I had no idea he had broken away from Gotham, Endre! I dined there in the late 2000's (09, I think) but, cannot for the life of me, remember what I had. It was likely the lobster but, I remember it being divine! 

I just clicked your link to see when he left and he opened his brand new restaurant in 2019 - JUST before the shut-down! Just WOW! It is still a successful restaurant in NYC.

I also did a search for his restaurant to see if this one had the Michelin Star rating...and it does! Just WOW - he certainly rose from the pandemic with another star. Good for him! Next time you go to NYC, you must take his cookbooks with you so that you can get his autograph.

Found this on the Michelin site:

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Trailblazing Chef Alfred Portale, who spent 35 years gathering a passionate following at the critically-acclaimed Gotham Bar and Grill, strikes out on his own with this innovative Italian restaurant. Set in Chelsea, this is casual fine-dining at its peak, with a generous space that is minimally dressed, elegant and deeply intimate.


The well-curated Italian menu is decidedly not bound by tradition; and the show-stopping house-made pastas—like cavatelli laced with a pitch-perfect arrabiata over a base of cilantro pesto—showcase Portale’s innovative style. Excellent duck, pork, roasted chicken and dry-aged steaks round out the entrée options, as do ethereal seafood plates like exquisitely cripsed cod bobbing in a lobster broth-based seafood stew.
