Drew Nieporent’s long commitment to Tribeca continues in the space that housed the legendary Montrachet and Corton. Chef/partner Markus Glocker’s modern European menu reflects his Austrian heritage and diverse experiences (Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Trotter). Dishes like Octopus “Pastrami,” Roasted Beets Linzer and Veal Tenderloin “Tramezzini” are inventive and delicious. Diners may order two ($55), three ($65) or four courses ($75) - fixed prices that represent excellent value. <br /> <br />Managing partner John Winterman, former longtime maître d’ at Daniel, welcomes you to a relaxed setting warmed by golden light and cozy banquettes. The wine list highlights the best of Burgundy; cocktails are expertly crafted.<br />

"We had previously been to Corton in the same space - Batard looks almost the same but has a slightly warmer feel. Service is attentive and the food comes out fast. Breads (two kinds) - served hot - were addictively good and as a result, we did not have any room for desert or cheese.
The price point at Batard is really good - a choice between 2 and 3 (or more) courses. The food is presented beautifully although the food runners lack engagement with the customer when bringing the food to the table - a recitation of the ingredients with little expression does not excite. This is unfortunately too common these days when servers do not carry through with bringing the food out. Of note is that the sommelier was friendly and warm and offered to help with wine selection (we did not ask for that and instead had cocktails and wines by the glass).
This was a very good meal - not sure I would go back as the choices in NYC are endless and there are always new hotspots to try - but this was a very nice introductory meal for a 4-night stay.
