The Gotham Lounge is an elegant, graceful restaurant and bar tucked into The Peninsula Hotel, which is the kind of place where the doormen start spinning the revolving doors before you walk through, so you don’t get overtaxed. Inside, the simple, bright décor is living room-comfortable, with overstuffed armchairs and sofas surrounding the perimeter. String music waltzes from the speakers above the crowd, which are mainly hotel guests, tourists sitting down to sample the $65 afternoon tea, or local movers and shakers holding business meetings. The menu offers a variety of wines by the glass, cocktails, loose-leaf teas, and la-di-da takes on classic pub fare. The kitchen is open until midnight, but look out, because these prices are straight out of the Upper East Side: $26 for a Peninsula Chicken Club, and $13 for a Heineken.
