Excellent food and warm candle light ambiance. Perfect for a celebration dinner. Love the townhouse feel like you are at a dinner party. Food presentation is creative.

Great little charming restaurant. Service was excellent as was the food. If you have time it's worth a try. We found it to be very reasonably priced for a upper end restaurant.

Staff at his Bloomingdale bar told me they have shut his original restaurant. They were renovating when they discovered too many issues with the building. Don't go looking for it.

David Burke Townhouse is the masterpiece of Award-winning Executive Chef David Burke, whose reputation for wildly creative takes on American ingredients is unsurpassed. Since 2003, David Burke has been serving provocative Modern American Cuisine in an elegantly refurbished Upper East Side space. The restaurant's design is inspired by the bold colors and lacquered surfaces on the 1930's, yet it has decidedly contemporary aesthetic. Upon entering David Burke Townhouse, guests will feel the glamour and sense of fun in the lounge with its sleek white gloss, stone bar and whimsical art installations. The volume of color and drama is turned up for the main event, the dining room, where a striking color palette of chocolate, vanilla and lipstick colors prevails.
