Gotham Bar and Grill's Tuna Tartare

New, 2 comments

Welcome back to the Eater video feature Untouchables. In it, Eater highlights iconic cult dishes that are practically synonymous with the restaurants that serve them. They are dishes that persist through menu changes, that diners return to again and again, that chefs can't remove for fear of revolt.


Alfred Portale first put the tuna tartare on the menu at Gotham Bar and Grill in the late '80s. Back then, it was not easy to source the sushi-grade tuna that he wanted for the dish. But he eventually found the right purveyor, and he's been going to him ever since. In the clip above, Portale notes that the tuna tartare is "a reminder of the good ole days."
