Gotham still has it

Had a fantastic meal recently at Gotham Bar & Grill. The food, the service, the ambiance were all top rate.  I had the foie bras terrine, apparatus and English pea risotto and crisp, soft shell crabs. One criticism might be that he wine prices have climbed a lot higher that Chef Alfred Portale’s food.  Otherwise,  it was just like I remembered it from 25 years ago!
