Elegant, nice atmosphere and good service, but the real impressive thing is how they cooked the salmon, wow. I have been in a lot of restaurants and I can say that is very difficult to find a salmon like that.

GRATA is Latin for 'Welcome'. It also means a gracious hello, and a gratuitous thank you. It's the proprietor's promise that you will be well-taken care of here. Mouth-watering cuisine stems from Grata is a melding of worlds. Upon entering, a curved bar carved from mango and cordova-colored wood greets you. This rich, beautiful wood is also used on the cocktail tables. Exposed brick walls and traditional linen-clothed tables complete the dining room decor. Cream-colored walls and ceilings weave a seamless blend of old and new worlds. This comfortable restaurant with its sleekly modern, yet classy European ambiance sits at the foot of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge on 59th Street and 1st Avenue, Manhattan. The charming decor makes a lovely night out for neighborhood regulars, a date, family or friends gathering, or for business people wanting to impress their clients to close that Grata is starting its second year. Come in, say hello and enjoy a delicious meal. Allow us the courtesy of thanking the Sutton/Beekman neighborhood (as well as Manhattan and its outer boroughs) for allowing Grata the room to grow and improve. We are thrilled to be a part of the Sutton/Beekman Place community. Many exciting events and changes are in store during our second year!
