"The Greenmarket provides our restaurant and neighbors with a variety of delicious, nutritious, and beautiful ingredients; the dishes we create are often inspired by walks through the market. It is also a meeting point with the growers, the people who are the most passionate and knowledgeable about that food. It is one of our most precious resources in New York City."Michael Anthony, Executive Chef, Gramercy Tavern
