Tribeca eats


I just took a part-time job in Tribeca and am new to the area. Can anybody recommend any good local places to eat that are inexpensive to moderate? I'm interested in all kinds of places for lunch and dinner......asian, french, spanish, american/english, everything.

Only place I know of is Pakistani Tea House, and I've seen Amish Market but haven't been in there yet.

  1. Here are some ideas:

    Giorgioni 508 (italian)
    Province (chinese mantou sandwiches)
    Bouley Bakery
    Wichcraft (good sandwiches, service can be slow)
    Franklin Station Cafe (malaysian/french)
    Columbine (sandwiches,soups)
    Max's (new pasta place)
    Turks and Frogs (turkish)

      1. re: Angelina

        I'm not sure either of these would fall into the inexpensive to moderate category, though.

        Landmarc is another solid bet that may be a little high end of what the OP is looking for.
        I'd also add Walkers'.

        If you're OK with Pakistani Tea House, I'd recommend Bangal Curry a little further down Church (I like this one better than the Bangal on W. Bway). And Sophie's on Chambers St. can hit the spot. Kitchenette on Chambers for breakfast and lunch (I don't like it for dinner).

        lchang, where is Max's?

        1. re: Calcifer

          sorry, it's actually called Max Restaurant. http://www.max-ny.com/
          It's at 181 Duane St (btwn Greenwich and Hudson) I believe it's an outpost of a restaurant in the E. Village.

          1. re: lchang

            Ah, I was wondering what that place was. Thanks!

      2. Blaue Gans on Duane bet Church and W. B'way.


          1. Province Canteen on Church and Walker for Asian sandwiches.
            Palacinka on Grand between 6th and Thompson for crepes, salads, and sandwiches.

            1. Here are some standbys for lunch:
              Bazzinni - make your own salads, sandwiches, and great soup (Jay and Greenwich St.)
              Tribeca Studio Deli - sandwiches (Franklin and Greenwich St.)
              Bubby's - comfort food (North Moore and Hudson) - this is a sit down restaurant
              Petite Abeille - Belgium food (West Broadway and Duane) - also sit down - but they do take-out

              1. Are any of these places good for dinner?

                  Petite Abeille, Edwards (right next door to Petite), and Bubby's are good for dinner. Walker's is another good bet for dinner - their burgers are very good as stated below.

                2. Delphi (W. Brodway & Reade) - very good basic Greek food. In business for 30 years and still packing them in. The souvlaki sandwich (actually it's a gyro) is an outstanding value.

                  Ignore the first comment on Menu Pages. The man is a fool.

                  Walker's - (North Moore & Varick) Very good pub food served in an old time New York saloon

                  1. Walker's is great for burgers. Square Diner is a great old fashioned diner too. Bazzini is a bit overpriced but has a very good selection. Sosa Borella is also a little nicer but has very good food in a nice atmosphere. Azafran has good tapas but is also pricier.

                    1. And, depending where in Tribeca you are, you may be very close to Chinatown.
