Telepan Local --New in Tribeca
Telepan Local opened in the space that was Industrio Argentina. They did a nice job with the renovation and the bar is comfortable for dining.
The dishes are all tapas.
The restaurant opened Jan 2, the place was packed.
The foie gras( not seared) jam sliders were tasty.
The sweetbreads with crispy garlic was very tasty.
The pizzette looked good but I didn't have it.
Wines by the glass are nice. The prices for glass of wine is $10 -12 ,,
The tapas were about $16 each ( a little high IMO).
I'm happy to see this place in Tribeca. It is casual, the staff wear flannel shirts. The noise level is high, especially in the dining area.
It's a farmhouse genre. I will be a regular here, unless it gets too packed.
Here's a Grubstreet review
Thanks for the write-up, foodwhisperer. Looking to go there soon.
Have you been to Telepan in UWS? I've been a couple of times and enjoyed the food. But obviously, this is a different concept they're going for here.
I thought the prices were relatively inexpensive, but it sounds like they're pretty small portions so it can add up if you have to order more than you expected coming in.
This place is more casual than UWS. I had only two dishes, but I think 5 dishes split with 2 people is good amount of food. They are tapas size dishes. The foie gras slider dish you get two , so it is easily shared. My bill for 2 dishes and glass of wine was $39 before tip. Nice place.
I went with a few friends for brunch today and we really enjoyed it! Especially the fact they take reservations.
The farro artichoke salad, mushroom panini, and taste of sourdough pizzete made for a good sized meal. A bite of my friend's banan pecan pancakes was great. Also a better than expected house coffee. We will be back.
