Chef Tom Colicchio is best known for his work on Bravo Network’s “Top Chef” but he has been part of the New York restaurant scene since he originally co-founded Gramercy Tavern with Danny Meyer in 1994. In 2001, he opened his first Craft restaurant. In 2002 he opened his first CraftSteak in Las Vegas and in 2003, he began ‘wichcraft, his sandwich shop. In 2006, he sold his interest in Gramercy Tavern and has since formed Crafted Hospitality, a premier restaurant company with 7 restaurants in the United States. Tom Colicchio has not only won awards for his food but also for his efforts as Citizen Chef in helping to end hunger for children in the United States.

Craft New York is the flagship restaurant for all Crafted Hospitality venues and offers food that is great for sharing. Guests build their own plate from dishes brought to the center of the table or you could get the 6 course Chef’s Tasting Menu. The menu is built on the freshest ingredients of the day. A first course could include grilled quail, chicories or cured artic char. The next course of pasta could be pappardelle with wild boar bolognese or squid ink spaccatelli with cuttlefish and chorizo. Fish offerings are fresh and meat ranges from Rock Cornish Chicken to Venison Wellington. Their famed porterhouse steak paired with fresh hen of the woods mushrooms (if available) or shishito peppers will not disappoint. If you have room, try the Maple-Bourbon ice cream or Pear-Walnut Torte for dessert. There are many reasons Craft has been successful since its 2001 opening and continues to be so. It is as magical and delicious as when it was first opened.
