The Lounge at Gabriel Kreuther

February 19, 2017

Gabriel Kreuther opened a little over a year just north of Bryant Park.  The sun drenched beautiful dining room is elegant and still one of my favorite spots in Midtown for lunch.

Fancy beautiful soft cocktails is a great start to lunch…

Followed by a generous serving of house made silky smooth liverwurst with grainy mustard and pickled kirbies and a disc of unctuous foie gras torchon.

From there, move onto the seasonal salad.  Like the beautifully colorful salad of acorn and butternut squash with jewel like pomegranate seeds scattered throughout below.

There is also an entire section of tart flambees for when I am in the mood for something a little more substantial.  You can’t go wrong with the classic, made with smoked bacon, creme fraiche and caramelized onion but the hens of the woods mushroom is also a winner.  Crispy thin crust, these are made to share with the table so I still have room for the entrees.

There are some amazing choices in the entree section.  For the winter season, the red wine braised tripe gratine with puy lentils is hearty and satisfying.  For those less adventurous, they also have one of the best duck confit I have ever had as well as at least two fantastic fish options.

Desserts here are fantastic if you have the room for it.  One of my favorites is the grand marnier baba with fresh mango, vanilla ice cream and lime granita.  For when I am in the mood for chocolate, the rich decadent chocolate tart with chocolate sorbet does just the trick.  Just as beautiful as the dining room.
