Hadn't been to Gotham Bar and Grill for years so entered with trepidation, but what a present surprise! Welcoming staff made it pleasant as we sat down to better than expected meal with a nod to current focus on farm to table and not ! (see the latest Times review on Le Cirque - arrgh) to memories of previous glory. Starters were a great beet salad with tangerines (just the right touch of acidity) followed by Muscovy duck with lovely foie gras. Others had green salad followed by Halibut - tasty and solid old favorite - lamb chops. Desserts also measured up with the Gotham Chocolate cake, with a side of salted caramel ice cream all that I remembered. WInes struck me as a little over priced but we managed able to discover okay reasonably priced French burgundies that served just fine and made for a pleasant evening.
