A word from Bâtard
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. 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. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Amazing food, and wonderful service. Should be on everyone's list to try."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Outstanding food and a great menu - Chef Glocker is one of the best chefs in NYC today imho. The plates are well composed, beautiful, have acidic balance, multiple textures and great flavors - solid all around. I followed Chef Glocker from his days at The London in NYC - which had a much nicer dining room (but higher prices). The only negative is that the dining room is a bit tight and the noise level can be a bit high. But the food will keep us coming back..."

  • "Took my boyfriend here for his birthday, was really excited since I enjoyed dining at the former Corton but heard that this was same quality food with a more relaxed environment. We were seated right away for our 9PM Saturday reservation, but then waited about 10 minutes to receive a menu, and about 20 or so additional minutes for our server to greet us to take our drink orders and talk about the menu. We went for the 4-courses. I had the pea soup, lobster appetizer, rabbit entree, and the 'off the menu' chocolate cake. The pea soup was the only noteable dish, lobster, rabbit & chocolate cake were pretty forgettable. My boyfriend had the steak for entree, that was also good, and the rest was forgettable."

  • "The food was excellent and timed between courses appropriately. Wine was poured when glasses got low. Staff was friendly. Would want a better description of what's on the plate when food is dropped next time, most courses were placed and offered a very vague "salmon", "pea soup" not enough when served intricate dishes. Was offered a "I'm not really sure what happened" excuse when their was a course mishap. Should and could have been handled differently. Assume all the negatives will work them selves out as the restaurant evolves past the first few months. Will def. go back and try again."

  • "some dishes were very nice, nothing was outstanding and one was a bust good place, but not compelling for me if i am coming downtown"

  • "Marvelous restaurant. Great food, ambiance and service. The room is beautiful with super lighting. Walls are beautiful. Very very romantic feel. Service could not be better. Everything taken care of and never intrusive. Food was wonderful. Two great starters. Heirloom tomato salad fabulous and roasted beet salad equally excellent. The main courses were the chicken schnitzel and monkfish. Again excellent and for dessert the chocolate cake with ice cream, whipped cream and sour cream. Second dessert was caramelized bread cake. For wine a bottle of Chablis and for an aperitif a kir. Very very highly recommended. Prices are $55 for 2 courses and $65 for 3. Not so high considering the overall experience. We really loved it and booked in August."

  • "four at our table-we ate mostly fish,all of which was on a par with le bernadin.far superior to the too precious and overly expensive Corton.Even better than Montrachet which we also loved.Kudos to drew n. and a great kitchen!"

  • "If you'd love a restaurant where the chef is super-talented and focussing his efforts on ONE restaurant (not 20), and where Drew Nieporent personally greets you at the door and later personally brings you your food, Batard is for you. Batard is also rather reasonably priced -- the 2 course dinner is $55, and there are a decent number of wines for under $50."

  • "I was thrilled to be able to get a table - I don't think that will last very long. This place is amazing. The food is consistently great across the menu, the decor is elegant and understated, and the service is friendly and unobtrusive. Prices are high but the value is still quite good for the experience. Would go back in a heartbeat."

  • "Lovely new Drew Nieporrent in the old Montrachet spot. To die for: lobster-stuffed squash blossoms. My friend is still raving about the veal."

  • "To be fair, I have to give high marks to Betard, though if it becomes too popular, getting a reservation will be difficult. The food is wonderful: first course, lobster and octopus; second course, branzino and schnitzel. Drinks: ol dirty batard (similar to a Manhattan), glasses of Riesling and pinot noir. Lots of staff, seamless service. We didn't feel rushed, but the time between courses could have been a little more. The menu is limited and I hope there will be periodic, seasonal changes, though everything on the current menu sounds worth trying."

  • "I admit a certain nostalgia for the old Montrachet...it only sets the scene of course for Batard which currently occupies the same space. Classilly decorated, the food, drink and service are the stars of the show. The concept of 2/3/4 course "make your own: prix fix, just adds to the comfort and enjoyment. Yeah, it's loud, but that too adds a certain energy. Knowlegable and dedicated staff pull it all together. While I understand it, I do, on principle, object to providing what amouts to a reservation deposit. Has to be a better way, don't you think? Won't stop me from going again...just have to make sure that I show up!"

  • "We had high expectations for Batard and they were surpassed. Not only was the food and wine exquisite, but the staff was some of the nicest I've come across. Knowledgable but not stuffy...fun and hip. Loved it!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The Prix Fix menu at Batard is a bargain. We chose 4 courses for $75. My favorite dish by far was the risotto. The portion was quite large, it was rich and delicious. The trout was also a nice portion for an appetizer. It was a lot like Char, simple and tasty. I had the schnitzel special as someone recommended it. It was nice but not as special as the other items we ordered. The sides were more interesting in fact. My husband had the pea soup which he enjoyed and a light fish dish. The desserts were interesting and quite good. My only lament was that the cocktail menu was a bit limited. I was in the mood for something fun and summery and nothing struck my fancy."

  • "the food is great and drew does know food and wine the place is way too noisy in an effort to make it casual there is lots of wood and no noise control so....it gets a bit annoying after a while the chef is a master food was impeccable in taste and looks there were maybe 5 wine stewards and ONE WAITER it took forever to order but wine was quick i am sure he will fix all this"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "What a phenomenal gem here in Tribeca!! The menu is absolutely stellar and the portions are executed to perfection!!! Chef Glocker is a culinary genius and is well deserving of all the accolades he has and will receive. The dining experience from start to finish was truly PERFECTION and makes you crave your next experience before you pay the check!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Excellent first time there-will definitely go back soon. The food presentation and preparation was unique-very enjoyable. The choice of 4 different cources for $75 was a bargain for this level of food. Service was very good-well trained staff."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I recently had the pleasure of dining at Batard, and I'm so greatful I did. From the hostess, to the servers, to the menu concept and food execution....perfection. The menu reflects a well rounded selection of fresh and seasonal specialties. Optional tasting menu was very versatile and well priced! The sommelier paired a lovely wine for us, again affordable. Chef Glocker is a true talent, and I'm so glad I followed him to Batard. I will be back, although I'm sure once the NY Times reviews Batard making reservations will be difficult."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "For having so many staff members, the service was not what I expected. I'm a customer who doesn't like to be bothered during my meal and I prefer knowledgeable waiters over amicable cheerleaders; however, the waitstaff was not particularly attuned to our needs. I took my husband to Batard for his birthday. We were asked to wait for a table even though I had a reservation and there were plenty of empty tables in sight. The menu was great - the food was good. However, the countless members of the staff were superfluous. The soup was brought out without the proper utensil. My husband's birthday, which I had noted in my reservation, was forgotten. We left without the birthday candles and with mediocre birthday memories."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Food: great, Experience: LONG. The concept seemed great, you choose either a 3 course/4 course menu and you can select as many courses our of each category you want. It can be: 1 app, 1 entrée 2 desserts, or all 4 entrees, or all 4 desserts. Etc. The problem is, 1 person ordered 3 mains and another ordered dessert and the rest of us did not. Since we all ordered 4 courses, we figured we'd each get our 1st course together, 2nd course together, etc. That is not how it works. If only 1 person orders an app, the rest of the people have to sit and wait WITH NO FOOD. So in turn our four course dinner turned out to be a 7 course menu because we had to wait for everyone elses courses WHILE WE HAD NO FOOD AND AWKWARDLY STARED."

  • "This sleek yet warm new space in the former Montrachet is welcoming and lively, but the only real reason to go: the food is exquisite. A focused menu features inventive, nourishing options. Highly recommend - especially for the octopus pastrami (trust me), the luscious turbot, and the respectfully treated veal. Dessert was sensational as well. Wine list is curated nicely and there is a lovely Puligney Montrachet on the by the glass list - always welcome. Like most restaurants these days, The noise levels are deafening and could be enough to keep some diners away. It's unfortunate - the only mark on this otherwise splendid option in TriBeCa."

  • "Very nice update to the old Corton space. The menu is quite flexible and a welcome relief from mandatory tasting menus. Food and service were very good, plus a really outstanding selection of cheese. Nice experience."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food is phenomenal. We had the pea soup, the tortellini and the risotto. All were superb. We shared the lamb which was excellently prepared. The noise level is a bit high because the floors are wood as are the table tops. No table cloths here, which is sad because the quality of the food is so high. The crowd was a mix of men in cuff-links and their bejeweled wives travelling down from Restaurant Daniel, and younger, less formally dressed locals. Not sure who will prevail over time. Wish the noise level was a bit lower and the sound system was not so loud. We will definitely return, though, because the food is truly outstanding."

  • "Loved our first visit to Batard to see the third reincarnation of this lovely space--we've been to all three incarnations. We greatly prefer this version to the previous Corton version which was too fussy for our personal taste. The food at Batard was uniformly delicious and beautifully presented, --particularly loved the octopus pastrami and the turbot, and my husband loved the lamb. The service was a bit uneven--it took 20 minutes to get all our cocktails--but this is not unusual in a new place. We definitely will be going back again and again for the amazing food."

  • "We went to Batard last week and really liked the food and the service. The simple "menu-carte" is easy to handle and adapt to your hunger/budget. The service was really good too, so the only thing we regret is the noise level, but unfortunately this seems to be the case of most NYC restaurante (upper class or not)."

  • "We went on night 4 of the restaurant being open, so there were definitely still some kinks they were working out. The food was great — will definitely be going back — but the service still needs some work. Frankly, the servers were just not attentive enough. It took 15 minutes or so to get bread and butter — something that should have happened right away, especially since the restaurant wasn't very busy when we arrived. I'm hoping this is just a problem that comes with having recently opened. That said, the food was fantastic and we can't wait to go back."
