Dante Is Taking Over Gramercy Tavern for a Martini Happy Hour
If NYC restaurants were music icons, Gramercy Tavern and Dante would be like Queen and David Bowie: Two heavy-hitting legends for which it was only a matter of time before they collaborated on a hit single.
That version of "Under Pressure" is finally here, in the form of Martini Hour, a weeklong takeover of Gramercy Tavern's casual dining room in Flatiron by Dante's creative director, Naren Young. He's bringing with him a full list of martinis for happy hour, including the Olive Oil Martini (olive vermouth, olive bitters and olive oil-washed vodka) and the Rose Petal (Hendrick's Gin, lychee, Peychaud's bitters and rose water). A large-format, tableside service is also available.
Here we are, folks. Dante residency starting in 15 mins at the legendary, Gramercy Tavern. 4pm - 7pm all week showcasing our signature ‘Martini Hour’. For those of you who can remember, the WSJ helped shut down our last attempt to bring the martini to the masses, with the closure of the 99c martini hour. This time @forkandshaker and @chefmikeanthony have developed a signature menu, with innovative twists and premium accompaniments. We’re thrilled to be showcasing this new program with our dear friends @gramercytavern. Don’t miss out on this one!
Gramercy Tavern's chef, Michael Anthony, is serving a special menu of bites to soak up all that liquor, in the form of crab salad with pepper sauce, a beef frittata and lobster with balsamic caviar. The happy hour is for the rest of this week only (through February 9), from 4 to 7 p.m.
