According to GOOP, there are tons of spectacular restaurants in New York, and with all the plethora of restaurants in that city, the competition is fierce. Two of those restaurants stand out among the crowd though, and they are the Gramercy Tavern and the Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery.

Additionally, they serve lunch, dinner, and late night, they take reservations, and they are spectacular for groups.
Their main chef is Michael Anthony, who is of the Blue Hill fame. People just loved their exquisite American cuisine, superior service, and warm hospitality. They have the dining area and the Tavern, and they are now considered a classic spot for private events. The dining room offers tasting menus at fixed prices along with an a la carte option for lunch. And the Tavern is a casually walk-in setting that offers four-course menus for dinner and an a la carte menu.
Located within the Noho and Greenwich Village neighborhoods, the Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery has been making a great buzz for years now. They are located at 380 Lafayette Street in New York City, and they have extended operating hours everyday. Their category of food is French, they take reservations, and they are great for groups and children.
This restaurant serves all three meals in a gorgeous brasserie setting. There are copper pots hanging in the kitchen, a fresh and clean look of a bakery, nice flooring of blue and white patterned tiles, spacious and inviting booths that are shaped like horseshoes, and plenty of white marble that offsets the dining room’s rusticity.
The Lafayette is a daily bakery and grand café full of splendid French cooking that range from Provence to neighboring Mediterranean coasts that offer the most loved traditional dishes to some signature dishes.
