We selected from the Summer pMenu and every course was impeccable. The complimentary muses were beautiful and unexpected. The service was polished and personable.

Bouley had many reincarnations and each one was always fantastic. This might be his last hurrah. So do not miss it

What really solidifies their... More

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.
