2014 Update on Restaurants in Battery Park Area


I just moved to Battery Park from Midtown, I am still trying to find restaurants but I havent been lucky ... always end up going to the West Village.... Found this thread but is from 2010

Love all types of cuisine and budgets. I would like to find restaurant where I can bring friends but I also need to discover a place where I can dine solo, when I used to live in Midtown my place was the bar @ Nougatine, great place to dine solo and I never felt awkward, I always ended up meeting/talking to people at the bar or bartenders.

Happy 4th!

  1. Did you search for "Battery Park City"? I assume you're open to all BPC options?

    You've got Blue Smoke, Shake Shack, North End Grill (new chef, ex-Calliope), as well as Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place which includes Dos Toros, Mighty Quinn's, Umami Burger, Black Seed Bagels, and more, with a Blue Ribbon Sushi coming soon.

    The bar at North End Grill is quite nice.

      Kathryn: spot-on, as usual! Don't forget Inattesso, though! Plus, Tartinery at Hudson Eats; foie gras in a food court! North End Grill: sitting solo at the kitchen counter, next to the bar, is also a good option.

      1. re: Andy T.

        Second Inatesso.
        Add Palm, and all the great Tribeca restaurants, very walkable from BPC

        Floyd Cardoz is no longer the chel at NEG? Is the menu much different now?

        1. re: princeofpork3

          Yes, I think they're going for a cheaper price point by a little? And more things made in house. We were there for a brunch a few weeks ago and had a great time.

      3. I'm looking forward to Brookfield Place, which has already been mentioned.

        Or venture over to the Financial District on the NN bus and enjoy Acqua (casual neighborhood Italian) and some of the others In the thread you posted. That said, there are more choices by you and in TriBeCa.

        1. Hey thank you so much for all the answers, im sorry it took me so long to answer but i was out of the country.

          In adittion to restaurants do you know any bars with small plates, good cocktails and great wine selection around FD/Battery Park area, TriBeca? I always go to the same places in Tribeca Teroir, Brandy Library, Khe-Yo

          Thank you Kathryn, Andy T., foodwhisperer, financialdistrictresident

                I was actually just there last weekend- they make an am.a.zing bloody mary! Nice outdoor area too. Next door there is a winebar whose name i totally forgot...... Anyways, its great for wine and apps, more dark datey kind of place than distilled and great by the glass selection.

                1. re: kathryn

                  Went on a Saturday night last month. No wait, about half full. Very friendly staff. Loved the chicken wings, chicken liver mousse (with chicken skin "crackers"), bird burger (flavorful, moist), lobster roll. Felt bad for the woman at the pass: she looked pretty pissed at not being able to find waitstaff to deliver food, but we didn't feel delayed at all.

                2. re: perusalem

                  Hard to top teroir IMO but Racines is worth checking out. And further up on canal Skal has some interesting cocktails and nibbles
