This restaurant is about passion and about one man: Chef Joe. He is passionate about cooking and serving a simple yet sophisticated food. By simple, we mean totally understandable, with exactly the needed ingredients, a perfect cooking time for the meat, and the right amount of seasoning. Gansevoort Steak House is a nice surprise. We did not expect such quality food in a food market restaurant, and much less this warm and very personal service and attention to details. We absolutely love this restaurant. Chef Joe is the soul of this place, and his obvious love for food is contagious. We want to come back for more.
