Having lived in Macao for 10 years and seen the change from Old Portuguese / Macanese to China meets Las Vegas it was a pleasant surprise to see a restaurant with Macanese favourites and new twists. We visited New York last weekend and thought this restaurant would bring back happy memories ... there was certainly a Macao vibe and we... More

We literally walked past three times before finding the entrance. What looks like a doorway to a private residence or business, hides a buzzing little joint with excellent food. As there was just myself and my brother we chose to sit at the bar, but the tables looked nice too. Often with places like this, the emphasis is on cool... More

Popped in hear across from hotel on a Monday night and a nice 3 piece jazz band playing. Pretty noisy so hard to have a decent conversation but all the locals friendly and the quality of the music good. Big cocktail list and snacks avail. Didn't do the 'downstairs' which apparently goes off later in week and weekends. Good local... More

During the course of an evening, I drank or sampled the odd job, mah-jongh, and ciao rizo, among others, each a uniquely crafted specialty cocktail prepared with exquisite attention to detail, down to the careful rubbing of lemon on the side and rim of the glass, assembled with pride by white jacketed professionals. They can make any standard cocktail and... More

The food was very skimpy and way overpriced. Four veggie dumplings for $16 and a plate of fish - maybe a piece no larger than 3 ounces with no vegetables or sides was $29. We left hungry. If you go, the bar is very nice and they have live music in the evening which was quite good. So, I would... More

Four of us visited on a Friday night. For starters, the front-of-house staff was very professional, offering a 9:30 appointment when in called on Friday afternoon, and then calling me back to offer up the. 9: 00 pm I requested after they had an appointment. So +1 for that. When we first arrived service was prompt and professional; and while... More

Shortly after opening it was well filled at the bar of friends to restaurant staff. Even in this tough competition, I got the opportunity to quietly peek through the menu.Chinese and Portuguese cuisine, the possibilities of this combination is probably minimal even in New York.But now I was here for an espresso and rum and something sweet addition.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
