As a neighborhood, TriBeCa is a part of New York to see and be seen, especially if you’re a financier bigwig who’s decided to settle down and raise a family. As it consistently ranks as one of the most expensive zip codes in the country, prices at restaurants often follow suit, but that doesn’t mean the food doesn’t live up to the sticker shock.
While most spots in the area cater to a family clientele (albeit the Louis Vuitton onesie type ones), the quality of the fare goes toe-to-toe with many other more food-centric parts of town. And the diversity of the cuisine isn’t one to shake your head at either.
From the the high-end Indian cuisine and experience at Tamarind to Italian favorites like Locanda Verde, you can drop dough while adding some to your waistline with no problem.
But if you’re looking for a place to nosh that’s a little more low-key, TriBeCa’s got that, too. Enjoy “Midnight Brunch” at Bubby’s or step off TriBeca’s cobblestone streets and right into the Bayou at Belle Reve, where you’ll find live music, cool cocktails and American classics.
Below, we explore the lap of luxury and the lives of locals when we dive into the 10 best restaurants in TriBeCa.
