Tribeca Area - Dinner Recommendations needed

All,

I will be in Tribeca Nov. 17 and I am looking for a great dinner place. I am pretty much open to anything that we have not already tried. We will be staying at the Greenwich so the radius by car is 15 mins, I guess, Soho, West Village etc.

Recently we have eaten at:

Locanda Verde
Harrison
Marc Forgione
Tribeca Grill
Megu
Landmarc (Columbus Cir. location)
Tamarind Tribeca
Vietcafe

Any recommendations are appreciated. We have reservations for Blue hill the week before the 17th.

  1. Highly recommend Bouley for a very special dinner.

    1. re: ellenost

      Bouley was impressive but very formal.

      1. re: princeofpork

        I had dinner at Bouley last week, and there were a number of guests dressed not too formally (women in dress jeans and sweaters).

        1. re: ellenost

          I guess when I said formal, I meant quiet, reserved and subdued.

    2. Try JUNG SIK- Best meal we've had in a loooong time.....we're just back from 41 degrees in Barcelona and Tickets, the latest from Ferran Adria..and Jung Sik blew them both away......take a look at their web site, each and every dish is pictured and described...we went there two weeks ago and haven't stopped talking about it yet. One thing tho...it's very expensive- tasting menu is $125pp ++ But it's really incredible!!

        2. For something casual like The Harrison, try Cercle Rouge.

          1. Do you like Japanese? If so, I would recommend Sushi Azabu. Otherwise, I second Bouley.

            I recently dined at Mas Farmhouse in the West Village and it was absolutely amazing. Definitely try it out sometime too, especially if you like Blue Hill!

              1. For the NY steakhouse experience, how about Wolfgang's?

                1. Thank you everyone for the choices! I will be scouting menus today. I really want to try Bouley, but I worry its a bit too formal for a business dinner with a partner at my office. Does Corton offer more than just a tasing menu? What about Jung Sik?

                  1. re: JaketheWonderDog

                    I have seen numerous business dinners at Bouley through the years. Heck, I'd love to have a business dinner at Bouley instead of the usual steakhouse or Le Bernardin (many years ago).

                    1. re: JaketheWonderDog

                      Corton I believe has 2 menus, and a wine pairing option which is what I chose. It is amazing.

                      1. re: taboo

                        Corton is another excellent recommendation for fine dining in Tribeca.

                    2. I used live near Blaue Gans and City Hall (lived close to all three City Halls, the restaurant, the gov't buildings and the park). Blau and the Hall are on Duane, ugly little misfit street (but the best free street parking no one knows about so there was always a spot). I always liked City Hall, minus the ugly street, because of the interior and casual fun vibe. I also like Terroir which is a little more north. Terroir is really fun but plays to a gang mentality ( good for groups, noisy people lol). I don't know if these places are too casual or not intimate enough for what you're looking. hth

                      I also really recommend The Beagle. Don't laugh at the name lol but it's really a great well-excecuted restaurant. It's in the LES/ABC hood, don't know if that's too far. I woundn't recommend driving there from where you're staying. Better to take a cab.

                      1. You've already hit most of my favorites in Tribeca proper (Forgione & Locanda mainly) so if you don't want something as formal as Corton or Bouley, I'd venture to Soho or into the Village. Tons, tons, tons of options. Just off the top of my head:

                        The Dutch

                        Babbo (if you're lucky enough to get a reservation)

                        Blue Ribbon Brasserie

                        David Burke Kitchen

                        Minetta Tavern

                        In the MPD, still within easy cab ride distance:
