Gotham Bar and Grill, the New York City mainstay that derives its long history of success by celebrating “stability and excellence, [and] perhaps even opulence,” has just introduced its take on the classic American burger.
In the restaurant’s three decades of service, the restaurant has been reviewed six times (five in the first 12 years), and received a total of 15 stars, including three from Sam Sifton in 2011 in the restaurant’s most recent review.
Gotham’s new lunch menu-only burger is aptly called The Gotham Burger and is topped with Madeira sautéed mushrooms, black truffle cheese and sweet onion, and Niman Ranch bacon marmalade.
The Gotham Burger is served with Kennebec fries on the side for $19 and joins Gotham’s fairly extensive lunch menu, which is composed of “firsts” and “seconds.”
Currently, executive chef Alfred Portale is also running a white truffle pasta lunch special, featuring housemade fettuccine in a Parmigiano butter sauce topped with freshly shaved white Alba truffles.
