  1. Thanks Rodger. I really love GT. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. There was a period of decline that set in sometime during the late 1990s to early 2000s. All of that changed with the selection of the current executive chef, Michael Anthony, formerly of Blue Hill Washington Square and Blue Hill Stone Barns.

    Previous to the Blue Hill restaurants, Mr. Anthony was associated with L’Arpege (Paris), L’Astrance (Paris), Daniel (New York), March (New York) and Le Prés d’Eugénie (Paris). Chef Anthony’s style is a classical French sensibility as seen through the prism of seasonality and the inventiveness of New American cuisine.

    It’s easily one of the top restaurants in New York City. Worth every penny.
