Best in meatpacking??

What are some of the best restaurants in the meatpacking district?

  1. I ate at Spice Market and Barbuto on my last visit, but am looking for some of your local favorites.....

    1. I revisited Pastis recently and forgot how good it was. Basic French bistro food. Some of the better mussels I have had in the city and the steak tartare was yummy too. Don't think it's "the best", but it was good.

      1. Oh...Pastis is consistent, and it is so lovely to sit outside and watch the world while you share a carafe of wine and have some steak frites and escargot. At certain times of the year, it feels "best". Do you know what I mean?

          I do know what you mean. It was quite yummy. We had a three hour dinner with lots of french rose. It was memorable.

        2. We passed by Pastis, it did look lovely. That's definitely on my list to visit next time! I love that area...

          1. Just thinking about it makes me think...maybe this weekend? Jenniebnyc, I love those kinds of dinners!

              Go for it!!! After dinner try Employess Only for a cocktail. The mixologists there make some wonderful concoctions!

                Excellent idea! I've never been and have been wanting to try it. Thanks!
