It was a nice night in the beginning of October and my girlfriend and I decided to meet for dinner at David Burke Tavern which is located at 135 East 62nd Street between Lexington and Park. Until I started posting this article I didn’t realize how famous David Burke.
Here is what I read:
“Fueled by passion, grit and a knack for artful innovation, David Burke is one of the best known and most respected chefs in modern American cuisine with his signature whimsical, boundlessly creative approach to food. In addition to being an internationally celebrated chef, Burke is: a restaurateur; artist; philanthropist; businessperson; author; educator; art collector; puppeteer; minister; doctor of business administration, honoris causa; and beekeeper. David Burke Hospitality Management (DBHM) owns, manages, licenses, and consults with restaurants, hotels, clubs, and schools worldwide. Currently, Burke and his DBHM team operate or orchestrate the culinary component of 18 restaurants, a historic event venue and a bakery. They also oversee a growing roster of David Burke branded products, including cookware, bakeware, steak sauce, cutlery, and wine.

Well, the food was great so I was grateful!
Here are some photos of the outside and inside as well.
So what did I decide to order?
I was super hungry so I decided to order the db Brined and Roasted Chicken with toasted farro, wild mushrooms and kale. It was grrreat!
With that I decided to order a side of Brussel Sprouts. Looove Brussel Sprouts. These were grrreat!
So if you’re in The Bloomingdale, Upper East Side area I totally recommend the David Burke Tavern.
The food was grrreat!
