The Restaurant

The main entrance to Gray & Dudley is through Banker’s Alley, located between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue. Guests can also enter through the hotel.

Gray & Dudley’s refined interior features double-height ceilings, marble accents, large historic windows, and artistic sculptures. There are two main dining rooms, two private rooms, and a bar and lounge area. Seating options range from booths to group tables to sofas.

Wallace’s menu is inspired by flavors of the Mediterranean, regions of France and Italy, and his own West Coast roots. The market-driven, largely communal menu will change frequently. Guests can also expect a variety of cocktail options and a carefully curated wine list.


The Museum

The 21c Museum is accessible from Gray & Dudley and is open 24 hours as long as it’s not reserved for a private event. The free and public museum is a captivating stop before or after dinner at Gray & Dudley.
