As the temperature begins to rise, so does our hunger for outdoor dining. Here are five of our favorite spots to grab a warm bite on the streets of Tribeca.
#1 City Hall Restaurant
If an old-city New York atmosphere is what you’re looking for, then look no further than City Hall Restaurant. Situated in a cast iron landmark building built in 1863, City Hall Restaurant is well known for having some of Manhattan’s best steak and seafood, but you can’t go wrong with their famed burgers. Combine that with a comprehensive wine list and top-notch service, City Hall restaurant is a fantastic choice for outdoor dining in Tribeca.
#2 The Harrison
The Harrison has somehow managed to create a classy restaurant with a casual atmosphere. The Harrison offers a wide variety of meal options, ranging from skillet roasted chicken to calf liver, but the most recommended item of the menu has to be their “duck fat fries”. The Harrison’s broad list of cocktails, wines, and craft beers makes this well-rounded restaurant one of Tribeca’s best for outdoor dining.
#3 The Odeon
The Odeon has remained one of Tribeca’s hippest places to dine despite being in a city full of relentless competition. The Odeon is well known for its French brasserie menu and distinguished martini list, but their american cuisine is just as enjoyable. Make sure you leave room for their warm custard brioche pudding, which will give you more time to enjoy their friendly Tribeca outdoor dining experience.
#4 Locanda Verde
Locanda Verde initially attained much of its fame through its owner, Robert De Niro, but has maintained its image by offering one of Tribeca’s finest options for Italian cuisine. Locanda Verde offers classic pasta options and a well rounded secondi, but it's the sheep’s milk ricotta that truly has Tribeca buzzing. It can often be difficult to get a dinner reservation due to its popularity, but perhaps try your chances on brunch in their charming outdoor dining section.
#5 Estancia 460
Estancia 460 aims to display the combined Spanish and Italian influence on Argentinian cuisine, and they certainly pull it off. Why not take a break from your typical New York City slice of pizza and try their style of thin crust and wash it down with an authentic glass of sangria. Estancia 460’s quiet street location makes it perfect for outdoor dining in Tribeca.
