Restaurant recommendation in TriBeCa ?

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a restaurant in TriBeCa with good food and atmosphere for a date night out with my husband. It doesn't have to be fancy...I'd rather we hit the mark with food quality and ambience. Couple of TriBeCa restaurants I do like are Corton and Blaue Gans. I'd happily go back to those, but would like to try a new place.

Thanks for your help!

  1. How about Bouley? I've also heard good things about Brushstroke but have not tried it yet.

      We liked Brushstroke a lot but it was VERY pricey. Probably only worth it if you are very into Japanese food, especially kaiseki.

      Second the rec on Bouley and also recommend Locanda Verde, although it tends to be pretty crowded.

        I "third" the recommendation for Bouley. I have a reservation for Bouley in 2 weeks, and a reservation for Brushstroke (for the first time) at the end of the month. Did you sit at the counter or at a table at Brushstroke?

          The counter - we love to watch them prep the food!

            That's what I requested. Looking forward to it (even though I will always very fondly remember Danube in the space).

              Hope you have a great meal...be interested to hear what you think.

    2. For something a bit more casual and affordable, I've always liked Landmarc in Tribeca (not fond of the one at TWC.)

      1. Also on the more casual side (at least in terms of ambience) is Marc Forgione. Hearty, creative New American, with a few particularly memorable regular dishes (the BBQ oysters, chili lobster, chicken for two) - solid wine list as well. Good date place, where I tend to think of Corton, Bouley, etc, as more of an anniversary / celebration type place. Not that they're cheap, but a bit lower than those two.

        1. Thank you all for the suggestions. I am narrowing it down to Forgione and Locanda Verde!

          1. I've been to both Locanda and Forgione. I love Locanda--I go pretty often and have never had a bad experience there. Forgione is pretty good too. The food is more creative but I always think it's kind of heavy.
