Tribeca - eat at the bar?
My birthday present is a Saturday night in a hotel in Tribeca without the kids. Since we've already splurged on the room, any suggestions on tasty, not pricey places to eat in the neighborhood? Or medium fancy places where we could eat at the bar? My first thought was the Harrison but would welcome suggestions.
I will second (third, fourth?) Marc Forgione - you can eat at the bar, but you'd probably be better off making a reservation (Saturday nights can be very busy... well, everywhere in the city) - they're "medium-fancy" by NYC standards, but keep in mind that might translate as "fancy-fancy" (pricewise) for those coming from elsewhere - entrees mostly in the high twenties to mid thirties, etc.
Locanda Verde is also very good - if not as creative/exciting - and a little cheaper.
Marc Forgione- i've eaten at the bar, that would be a good choice
Terroir- has very good meatball sandwich, the fried things i don't think are that good, the cheese selection is very good, the wine selection is very good.
Petit Abeille- has really good food and can eat at the bar
Odeon- you can eat at the bar
Walker's- has great burgers, can eat at the bar
Flor de Sol- has a very long bar,, and great tapas,, good bar to eat at
Kori- modern korean food at the bar
Greenwich Grill- can eat good food in the bar area at a table, bar is kind of small to eat at..
Wolfgang- I have had great steak at the bar
Edward's- can eat at the bar
Tribeca Tap Room- during the week can eat at the bar,,weekends too crowded
Blau Gans- Austrian food at the bar,,
Takahachi- japanese at the sushi bar
Nobu and Nobu Next Door- eat at sushi bar
Ivy's- can surely eat at the bar
Jerry's - can eat home style food at the bar
Tribeca Grill- is an excellent bar to eat at,, good food
The Harrison is probably more expensive than any of the above.
I'm not sure why you want to eat at the bar, when they all have tables inside and many outside.
Locanda Verde - great food, great cocktails, can be loud/busy, you can definitely dine at the bar. Good bartenders.
Smith & Mills - wonderful atmosphere, very cozy, cocktails are only OK though, you can dine at the bar. Less fancy.
Marc Forgione - I believe you can dine at the bar here, medium fancy?
