Private Dining at David Burke Townhouse

David Burke Townhouse is Chef Burke's flagship restaurant, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The Townhouse menu reflects his talent for bold flavors and creative combinations of the finest seasonal ingredients. The kitchen here is the birthplace of many of Chef Burke's signature dishes, such as Angry Lobster, the Lobster Steak, the Pretzel-Crusted Crab Cake and Cheesecake Lollipops. We are delighted to customize a menu to suit the needs of your event.

Beautifully presented dishes here are a wonderful complement to Townhouse's gorgeous, vibrant interior. The whimsical design features a striking pink Himalayan salt wall, an array of colorful hand-blown Venetian glass balloons, and contemporary fabrics and wall coverings. It is a true reflection of Chef Burke's artistic vision.

The restaurant's 125 seat interior is an ideal setting for an elegant wedding or formal celebration dinner. For a more intimate event, the main dining room or the mezzanine offers the gracious proportions necessary for a special occasion dinner, while the bar area serves as a perfect space for a citified cocktail reception.
