Dropped in one afternoon for a couple of beers, and the food looked really good, so we came back for dinner that evening. We were not disappointed! Great selection of food and drinks, friendly staff, and the place has a "local" vibe to it, not touristy. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. I'd happily eat here again!

Joined a friend on a business trip and ended up at a hotel between Tribeca and Soho, when I normally stay in Midtown. What a delightful surprise to find South's. Being directionally challenged even with the help of SIRI, I accidentally found this restaurant. It was obvious that they are consumer friendly. A group of people were gathered at the... More

Met my boyfriend in the area, and I was STARVING. He googled a few places and we decided to try this one. The sign outside said "Happy Hour 4-8pm" And they had mac n cheese. We almost stopped at the place next door, because there was a staff member outside giving us info. But we decided to go with Happy... More

We needed a quick bite after our flight and ended up here. Really nice small establishment which had some great food. We had the guacamole burger with fries and the chicken pasta. Both were great. Excellent atmosphere as well. Maybe a little bit too dark in a few places, but it sets a good mood.

A fairly non-descript local bar serving American food. Good value for money. I had the chili - nothing special, but nice enough. My son had the Shepard's Pie - it was good. The servings were substantial and not expensive. Good service.

We asked for a recommendation while shopping and were directed here. It is not on a busy street. It is so worth visiting if you are in the area. I ordered the chicken pot pie. My husband had the chili. Both were fabulous. Service was excellent.

Wow nacho heaven. So my partner told me about this place claiming they were the best nachos he has ever had. I was a bit sceptical. IT KILLS ME TO SAY HE IS CORRECT! These are the nachos you will find in the starter part of the menu which are massive and easily feeds two as a main course! The... More

Stopped by for dinner on a Sunday evening over Labor Day weekend. We got their burger, which was extremely juicy and delicious. Asked for a salad, which was much much better than your average salad, in fact it was fantastic. Had a local beer topped with Guiness...couldn't get any better. Service was quick and efficient. Absolutely loved this place and... More

Staying in TriBeCa

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.
