The Black Duck in Gramercy

Sarah Kerryman | Oct 28, 2005 05:22 PM

I have lived in Gramercy for four years and have never been to the Black Duck, or even heard of it. I happened upon it after work this past Monday by accident and ended up staying for the entire happy hour and then stayed for dinner. The bar was amazing, and surprsingingly full for a Monday night. It has a beautifully lit marble surface, a fabulous bartender (named Matt or Marc?), excellent drinks and specials and great food. The bar bites weren't anything special (we had calamari and wings, very ordinary), but our dinner was phenomonal, as was our service. The bartender is almost excessively knowledgable, and their wine list is small but decent. Go for the Surf and Turf or the Strip Steak. Anyway, I don't know why this place is such a secret. The decor isn't sleek, but it's background. My girlfriend and I are now hooked!
