I've only been to NYC twice and a co-worker who has
been there a number of times recommended the 'Tribeca
Grill'. I can't seem to find any information on the
actual restaurant except that it did lead me to this
message board. Is the Tribeca Grill an expensive
restaurant. I am traveling to NYC with a few friends
and we prefer Italian food. We want good quality food
with a decent sized portion. I don't want to go to a
restaurant because it is THE place to be. Do we need
reservations? We would like a comfortable place to
eat without paying an arm and a leg. Since I can't
find any info. does this place still exist? Any
advice would be helpful but again I'm not from the
area. Is the Tribeca Grill easy to find or well known?
I'm surprised you couldn't find info on Tribeca Grill because it's got quite a PR campaign going--celebritiy ownership and so on. People go there for the "scene" , not the food, which is very high priced and mediocre at best, with sporadic service. I have to go there on business occasionally (client loves the place) and dread it every time--and that's when it's not my own money.

Thanks for all your help everyone. My trip is in a
few weeks and I'll let you know where I eat and how it
was. For what it is worth to anyone - The Old
Original Bookbinders in Olde City - Philadelphia is
very good and expensive. I live outside of Philly and
don't go into the city much. It is in a very nice
section of town. The seafood at The Old Original
Bookbinders is outstanding. It is worth the money.
Anyone who enjoys Zinfandel wines should check out the winelist at the Tribeca Grill. I've had some wonderful meals there lately, and they're very knowledgable and helpful about pairing wine and food selections. The restaurant can be a bit loud when crowded, but there is a sense of excitement, and the food is really quite good.
