Gabriel Kreuther

Before the October Ball at the New York Public Library, Greg and I decided to have dinner at Gabriel Kreuther, one of my favorite Midtown restaurants that’s a stone’s throw away from the library.

We created quite a sensation when we entered the restaurant dressed in our black-tie attire and hats!

The restaurant has the coolest decor. These pictures really don’t do it justice!

The cocktail menu is cleverly named after New York City’s history.

One of my favorite things to do with cocktail menus is to order for the other person, and surprise each other with your choices.

I chose The Mystery Bust for Greg because I thought the name was funny. It has Bruichladdich Islay Barley, Vermouth La Copa, cherry, angostura and lemon. The story behind the drink is funny too! According to the menu, at the New York Public Library “two fountains were carved by Frederick MacMonnies, a sculptor from Brooklyn. He was also instrumental in the creation of the busts that are located inside the library. The identity of one of them was unknown for nearly a century. The mystery was solved a few years ago when researchers realized MacMonnies had secretly added a bust of himself to the library!”

Greg selected Beauty & Truth for me, which has Rémy Martin 1738, Singani, lemon verbena, lemon and yuzu. The menu explains that “visitors to the library are more than familiar with the two lions, Fortitude and Patience, that guard the entrance of the library; however there is another duo which is often overlooked. Beauty and Truth are fountains that also call 5th Avenue home. They lay dry for three decades and have only started flowing again after the recent restoration.”

For dinner we tried several dishes, including the Tempura Blowfish Tail with kohlrabi and peanut sauce.

We also sampled the Maine Lobster Croquettes.

And tried the Classic Tarte Flambée with smoked bacon, onion and crème fraîche.

We also ordered the Berkshire Pork Chop, mostly because it comes with a side of pumpkin spaetzle. How amazingly fall is that?!

We both love the food at Gabriel Kreuther, and I highly recommend eating there (black-tie attire optional)!
