Another decade, another New York Times three-star restaurant for restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Myriad Restaurant Group at 239 West Broadway, on the site of Montrachet, his first success in TriBeCa. What’s that? Montrachet is dead? Its successor, Corton is dead? Long live Bâtard! After opening in mid-2014 with Charlie Trotter and Gordon Ramsay alumnus Markus Glocker at the helm, bearing a name that means exactly what you think it does in French (OK, it also refers to a Burgundy vineyard), Bâtard has made an immediate impression on New York’s fine dining scene. It’s been enchanting reviewers and bloggers with contemporary American nouvelle cuisine, which they’re describing as being prepared with "a sniper's accuracy at the stove” — and at reasonable prices, too ($55 for two courses, $65 for three, and $75 for four). You’ll be the judge of that, but when you visit, you’ll want to try the octopus pastrami and the not-so-secret, perpetual off-the-menu special fried chicken schnitzel (yes, it’s a Drew Nieporent secret menu item).

Foursquare Tips

  • Amazing service, delicious food (even for vegetarians) and unpretentious ambiance. Fine dining in a casual setting, at an affordable price point. Try the beet salad, pumpkin agnolotti and milk bread.
  • Savory deliciousness. Everything from the warm & perfectly baked breads, shortrib starter to the tasty veal tenderloins w/sweetbreads & mushrooms was amazing. Loved the delightful marzipan cookies!
  • Start the night off with an Ol Dirty Batard cocktail and make sure to get the octopus pastrami! My friend said the oysters are divine...I didn't get to try since she wouldn't share.
  • From Ryan Sutton's 1 star review: "Glocker uses the natural gelatins of octopus and the warming spices of pastrami to make a silky mollusk terrine."
  • 2015 James Beard nominee for Best Chef - Markus Glocker / 2015 James Beard nominee for Best New Restaurant
  • I had one of the best meals in NYC at Batard. My favorites were monkfish cheeks with fennel pasta and fromage blanc with cilantro and lemon verbena...when you eat here you will know what flavor is...
  • The menu from includes octopus pastrami, pea soup with sweetbreads, black olive tortellini, rabbit with flavors of bouillabaisse, and veal tenderloin tramezzini.

  • The duck, the risotto, you just can't go wrong. Everything here is delicious.

  • Everything was fantastic. The steak tartare was the best I've ever had.
  • Reasonably priced fine dining. Duck entrees pretty good, octopus terrine a bit overrated.

  • Do all the courses.
  • Octopus pastrami was amazing. Also, duck!
  • Had the 3 course meal..excellent octopus pastrami, very creative. Then cod tagliatelli was tasty and the piece de resistance, the veal tenderloin was the best ever. The sweet breads was to due for.
