When a person dines out, they expect that they are going to have a great time. They look forward to enjoying the food, the waiters/waitresses, the music, the decor, everything. It all comes down to the choice of the customer on where they end up dining, whether it be somewhere that they will want to go again to, or a place that they will never want to do business with again. The atmosphere of a restaurant can make or break a customer’s experience at the establishment. The Gramercy Tavern and Charlie Bird are places that will make you want to come back again.
The Gramercy Tavern
The Gramercy Tavern, located in the Gramercy and Murray Hill neighborhoods of New York City, is a restaurant that has been running for over 20 years, and provides lunch, dinner, and even late night dinner options for those who are free to dine then. Started by Union Square Hospitality Group’s Executive Leader Daniel Meyer, the restaurant has been continuously packed since its opening. Meyer was born on the 14th of March in the year of 1958 and has opened several restaurants in the Manhattan area since the opening of his first restaurant that he named Union Square Cafe in the year of 1985.
Gramercy Tavern’s food is a combination of local and well known American dishes that people of all ages can enjoy. Of course, since they also serve as a tavern, only customers of age can indulge in their alcoholic beverages. They offer a variety of appetizers, cheeses, cocktails, beers, and even an entire menu for coffee and tea, as well as a wide variety of wines. With such a huge selection on their menu, it is no wonder why this restaurant always has plenty of business.
Charlie Bird is also found in New York City. Located in the Soho region of the city, they provide Italian/American dishes in a new way, cooking for the citizens of Manhattan in a way that not every restaurant can achieve. They use local ingredients, all originating in New York, and their food is a way that they celebrate the life that they have been given. They are quite an artistic establishment, and decorate their dining area with old-school prints that are known as boombox prints. They also are a fan of rap music, as many famous rap artists such as Jay-Z and Snoop Dog can be heard blasting from the speakers at all times of the day.
The Tarallucci e Vino is another fine dining space in New York City, but this time, has a twist. This dining location is a private space, for customers can pay to rent out one of the two private spaces and enjoy personally cooked meals from Chef Riccardo Bilotta, who has been cooking in the New York City area for over 10 years. Bilotta has experience managing quite a large staff, successfully managing over 14 people at Tarallucci e Vino. He excels in Italian food and providing a great time for those who pay to spend time enjoying his cuisine.
