As of late 2023, Tribeca boasts six Michelin-starred restaurants: Atera, with its seasonal tasting menus; omakase restaurant Icca; Korean fine-dining establishment Jungsik; Asian-French fusion specialist L’Abeille; farm-to-table restaurant One White Street; and edomae-style sushi eatery 69 Leonard Street. The neighborhood is also home to much-loved mainstays such as The Odeon, Tribeca Grill, and Bubby’s. Yet Tribeca still manages to make room for new eateries, including several listed below.
Launched in autumn 2023 and named after a sun-soaked island in the Aegean Sea, Paros brings a taste of Greece to Tribeca—albeit with a few global updates. The various crudos, for instance, are flavored with un-Mediterranean ingredients such as yuzu and chimichurri. Plenty of other dishes, however, spotlight treasures of Greek cuisine. The saganaki is made with pan-fried kefalograviera cheese and enhanced with honey from Paros; the lamb-shank youvetsi, a hearty Greek stew, includes mizithra cheese; Greek fishes lavraki and fagri are grilled whole. Lemon potatoes are a must-order side, just as you can’t complete your meal without ordering the baklava or the portokalopita, a classic orange cake served here with Greek yogurt gelato.
Like Paros, Taq opened in autumn 2023. The cozy eatery offers what it dubs gourmet tacos, with far-ranging influences. Take the griego taco, stuffed with lemon-herb chicken, homemade tzatziki, and feta, or the sésamo, brimming with grilled sirloin in sesame soy with pickled cucumber slaw. Vegetarians will want to visit on Thursdays to savor that day’s special taco, roasted Brussels sprouts with spicy peanut sauce, jalapeños, and avocado—though vegetarian options are available every other day as well. If you cannot live by tacos alone, start your meal with nachos or house-made chips with guacamole and other dips, then complete it with tres leches cake. And of course you can wash it all down with a margarita or two, including specialty flavors such as spicy mango.
Since opening in early 2022,has earned major buzz (and a Michelin star) for its Asian-influenced French tasting menus. In summer 2023, it opened this spot next door, which expands on the original restaurant’s limited à la carte offerings. Wagyu beef is the star of two entrées: a teriyaki burger and a rib-eye steak. For something lighter, opt for the risotto made with koshihikari rice (the type used for sushi), a poached jidori egg, and white truffle shavings, or make a meal of several starters such as the roasted eggplant with jamón ibérico.
Osteria Carlina opened its second location in spring 2023, two years after the debut of its West Village restaurant. Specializing in northern Italian cuisine, both restaurants make their own pasta, which shines in dishes such as lobster tortelloni with mascarpone and tagliatelle with salmon, lemon sauce, and pine nuts. Truffle-lovers will eat up the truffle menu, in which every dish—from the Piedmontese steak tartare to the fried chicken Valdostana—is topped with shaved white truffle. Three-drink tasting flights of amari and grappe and a four-course tasting menu simplify ordering for the indecisive.
This compact restaurant isn’t new; in fact, it’s located in an 1810 townhouse that’s perhaps Tribeca’s oldest extant structure. The lovingly restored interior alone would make it worth a visit, but its elevated take on comfort food lives up to its surroundings. The likes of steak au poivre, roasted duck with a calvados glaze, and grilled branzino with kale, turnips, preserved lemon, and gremolata make Tiny’s a delightful dinner spot. And many say its weekend brunch is even better: buttermilk biscuits with house-made jam, challah French toast with Nutella and amaretto-macerated berries, a veggie-loaded grain bowl…
