Bohemian and fantastic!

Hidden away (you could easily miss it) behind the Roxy is the Macao Trading Co. I was recommended this place by one of the staff at The Roxy Tribeca hotel and she was commended for her choice. This bar / restaurant is a wonderful place and set in an old building with high ceilings. The food is... read more

We went for a business party in the opium (not real) room in the basement, cozy and cool, the drinks were unique and incredibly, the appetizers were well made with asian influence, the main salon its also beautiful.

This place is a rare find, mixing Portuguese and Chinese cuisine and culture in a way you wouldn't find anywhere outside of Macau 50 years ago. They haven't spared anything in their authentic design of the restaurant creating a very intimate and inviting space for socializing. The menu is unique and flavorful and best to order family style. It's one... More

Work dinner with NY metro team gave a great look at the menu. Dumplings, Octopus, Fried Peppers were great appetizers. Giant pork chop looked great, I had the Cod which was just the right size portion and well prepared. Very noisy place, full of locals enjoying themselves.

Service is less than average, first question on arrival is 'what time does the 3rd guest arrive", no welcome, good evening, or any other form of politeness. After that the service is speedy, hygienic...things get done without a smile. The setting: very packed and crowded, not a single spot lost, so be ready for a cramped diner. The food: really... More

My husband and I had booked a table at Macao for Nov 12th. As we approached the restaurant I stopped to finish a phone call before entering. Outside there were a few staff members smoking; when they finished one flicked their cigarette towards my husband. It missed him by cm's. My husband said' excuse me!' and the staff member smirked...

When you head down Church Street in the TriBeCa you would walk right by Macao unless you knew what was hidden behind the door. There is nothing outside to tip you off. Macao is a fantastic bar and restaurant, with outstanding food and a vibrant bar and restaurant scene. Macao is not large, but worth it. Just like the name,... More

Came here for a really early snack before a 1030 dinner last week. Absolutely solid and I cannot wait to try other things on the menu. We split an order of dumplings, half steamed and the other half fried. I was not a fan of the fried as it was definitely not what I was used to. It ended up... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
