Gramercy is perfect for a few reasons. The location is super accessible; it offers a walk-in Tavern with a la carte dining and a more casual environment, as well as the Dining Room for a more sophisticated option. The food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and you’ll really impress your clients with this choice. Gramercy is a non-tipping restaurant as well, so the slightly higher menu prices will reflect included hospitality.
