Best lunch near Bryant Park. Celebrity chef Charlie Palmer never disappoints! Good service, too. The Pork Belly is to die for! So crispy on the outside and tender and flavorful on the inside. Great dessert. Expensive but hey it's NYC.

We were really looking forward to this but it was disappointing I’m afraid. The gluten free bread was like regular white sliced from the supermarket and not what we expected. The restaurant knew in advance that we had some dietary restrictions but yet didn’t seem...More

The atmosphere is lovely but very corporate. Missing the romance and intimacy of the original townhouse. The asparagus risotto was outstanding with the fresh flavor of spring. That was followed by the Artic char surrounded by heritage tomatoes. The skin was perfectly done and the...More

Found this gem to be over the top in their wine list, cuisine for all and the most attentive staff in recent memory. My salmon was killer and the carbonara was almost dish-licking good. Highly recommended.More

Hi, I've never seen a gluten-free menu or any dishes that denoted as such in their dining room, but then I've never asked. Play it safe and call them directly.
