Executive Chef, restaurateur and cookbook author David Burke began his storied career working with legendary chefs in France and New York such as Pierre Troisgros, Daniel Boulud, and Charlie Palmer. Along with opening restaurants across the country, Burke’s career milestones also include James Beard awards and appearances on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters.
David Burke Tavern is a modern American restaurant by award-winning Celebrity Chef David Burke. Its long-awaited re-grand opening is here and we could not be more excited. Situated on the first two stories of a stately townhouse on New York City’s Upper East Side, the restaurant showcases Burke’s creative and contemporary approach to classic fare – often with show-stopping presentations. Signature dishes highlight seafood, steakhouse staples and beyond, including Livid Lobster Dumplings with spicy tomato; BBQ Bison Short Ribs; and Burke’s famous “Clothesline” Candied Bacon. Himalayan Salt Brick Aged Steaks utilize Chef Burke’s patented dry-aging technique. The food is matched by a thoughtfully curated wine list, craft beers, and specialty cocktail programs.
David Burke Tavern offers dinner, Sunday brunch, bar, and lounge menus, as well as multiple private dining spaces including the intimate Himalayan Salt Room, lined with pink sea salt bricks. The restaurant is located at 135 East 62nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue.
