Consistently ranked among the top 10 restaurants in the City, Danny Meyer’s USC in Gramercy does almost everything right. A large bar is the centerpiece of the main floor. The impressive wine list, sorted by flavor and varietal rather than by region, can inspire an impromptu tasting. The dishes that have made them famous include the heirloom tomato salad (when in season), lamb chops, filet mignon of tuna and, for dessert, a warm banana tart with honey-vanilla ice cream and macadamia nut brittle. The amicable service will ensure repeat visits. Vegetarians will be pleased with the selections on the menu.
