Had a great evening at Gramercy Tavern. Instead of getting stale like so many restaurants, this one seems to get better- the food, the service, the reception.

Fluke Tartare
Radish and Caviar

Clam Chowder
Celery Root and Smoked Trout Roe

Carrot, Cabbage and Calamari

Duck Dumplings
Turnips and Black Kale

Roasted Loin of Millbrook Venison

For the wines, we had a 1995 Meursault by Robert Ampeau (Côte de Beaune) and a 2001 Clos des Lambrays.
