One nice night at the beginning of October, my girlfriend and I decided to meet for dinner at the David Burke Tavern
. It’s located at 135 East 62nd Street between Lexington and Park Avenues. Until I started researching for this article, I didn’t realize David Burkes’s fame.
David Burke Branded Products
Here is what I found:
“Fueled by passion, grit, and a knack for artful innovation, David Burke is one of the best-known and most respected chefs in modern American cuisine with his signature whimsical, boundlessly creative approach to food.
In addition to being an internationally celebrated chef, Burke is a restaurateur, artist, philanthropist, businessperson, author, educator, art collector, puppeteer, minister, Doctor of Business Administration, honoris causa, and beekeeper. David Burke Hospitality Management (DBHM) owns, manages, licenses, and consults with restaurants, hotels, clubs, and schools worldwide.
Burke and his DBHM team operate or orchestrate the culinary component of 18 restaurants, a historic event venue, and a bakery. They also oversee a growing roster of David Burke branded products, including cookware, bakeware, steak sauce, cutlery, and wine.
Known for his industry insight, culinary accomplishments, business acumen, and candid observations, Burke is often a leading contributor to major news sources, such as ABC TV, Forbes, Fox TV, Bloomberg, and more. He is also frequently called upon to play the role of event honoree, speaker, and judge.
In the parlance of today’s celebrity-driven culture, he is a rock star of the culinary world.”
The food was excellent and met my high expectations, so I was indeed pleased!
Here are some photos of the outside and inside as well.

So, what did I decide to order?
I was super hungry, so I chose the Brined and Roasted Chicken with toasted farro, wild mushrooms, and kale. It was great!

With the Roasted Chicken dish, I ordered a side of Brussels sprouts. I love Brussels Sprouts. These were delicious!
