Food Finds around Tribeca
3 Chowhounds visiting next week. Will be staying in Tribeca.
Please shout out your favorite food finds in the areas fairly close by.
We really want "good tasting food". Would prefer to hit more casual places than upscale.
Also interested in things like "the best cupcakes", "best place to pop in for a cocktail", etc.
My favorite places for dinner in the area at a moderate price are Upstairs at Bouley and Blaue Gans. Petite Abeille is great for a casual lunch on brunch.
Best cocktails are at Brandy Library. Pricey, but definitely worth it for the quality and atmosphere. www.brandylibrary.com
Landmarc is a really good value, with low wine markups - great food. www.landmarc-restaurant.com
We just tried Nam for Vietnamese and it was great, very inexpensive. www.namnyc.com
For a quick sandwich, try 'witchcraft on greenwich- www.wichcraftnyc.com
The John street bar is a great place for a drink and also has o.k bar food. The wings are excellent and the bartenders make good drinks. Also a good people watcher bar.THe bar as it is named is on John Street.
Bakery I haven't tried - but on my to do list- is duane park patisserie. see info : www.madelines.net. Wonder if the cupcake tastes as good as it looks in the photo. In the financial district are locations for Financier Patisserie. see http://www.financierpastries.com for locations and products.
