Best of the Best 2016: Leisure | Dining: Gabriel Kreuther

Kreuther’s menu culinary journey, from his Alsace roots to his tenure at top New York restaurants...

Nothing is left to chance at Gabriel Kreuther’s elegant, modern eatery in Midtown Manhattan. His attention to detail starts with comfortable cream-colored banquettes, tables spaced so there is room to breathe, and places set with sculptural Vera Purtscher flatware. The impressive menu, filled with surprising flavors, fulfills high expectations. Best bet: Let Kreuther orchestrate your multicourse dining experience and sommelier Emilie Perrier select pairings from the 42-page wine list.

  • The menu reflects Kreuther’s culinary journey, from his childhood in Alsace to his tenure at top New York restaurants such as Jean-Georges and the Modern.

  • Signature dishes include foie gras terrine with black-truffle praline, cardamom-roasted Alaskan king crab, and a tableside-torched Crème Brûlée Frappé.

  • No stone is left unpolished: Even the ice in the iced tea is made of iced tea.
