Nick Anderer Is the Acting Pooh-bah at Gramercy TavernEach week, we highlight one of the great but obscure young chefs who are actually running one of the city’s major restaurants.
Name: Nick Anderer
Restaurant: Gramercy Tavern
Background: Anderer put in time with New American pioneer Larry Forgione at the start of his career, followed by a short stint working the line at Babbo, and six months in Milan at the well-regarded San Giorgio et il Drago. He joined Gramercy as a line cook under Tom Colicchio and became executive sous-chef, the restaurant’s equivalent to chef de cuisine, under new chef Mike Anthony.
