The {Tribeca} Life: Two Eateries to Try This Week

The {Tribeca} Life: Two Eateries to Try This Week

{ Washington Market Tavern }

One of the best casual dining experiences in Tribeca is at Washington Market Tavern.  Located on 41 Murray Street between Broadway and Church Street, this local restaurant has the perfect lounge for events, and I’m planning on hosting a few here in the coming months! Headed by Mudville 9’s owner, Eric Schwimmer, this restaurant and lounge offers a seasonal menu of shareable plates and updated classics of locally sourced ingredients created by Executive Chef Aksel Theikul, and a collaborative cocktail list by Beverage Director Ste King.

Sharing is encouraged so be sure to try one of each of the 4 part dinner menu (Raw, Garden, Ocean, and Farm).  I highly recommend the Lamb Tartare, Aged Steak, Bourbon Braised Bacon, Maine Lobster and Fava Bean Ravioli. You can also try the Spring Carrots prepared six different ways:  grilled, roasted, shaved (raw), butter-poached, dehydrated, and slow-roasted carrot puree.

Sip on The High Fashion – a craft spirit of carbonated bourbon with maple syrup – and indulge in complimentary house-made english muffins with olive oil and herb butter.

If you can manage, save room for dessert. You won’t want to miss out on the decadence of the Late Summer Squash Cakeor Luker Chocolate Terrine.

{ tutto il giorno }

New to Tribeca, tutto il giorno is all the rage!  With locations in Southampton and Sag Harbor, the Tribeca location is the latest adaptation of the brand known for their local, fresh food reminiscent of dining outdoors under a European sky.  A newly recruited chef fresh off the boat from Naples, Agostino Petrosino is quickly making a name for himself in Manhattan.


With a classic Italian menu focused on flavor, it’s hard to choose what to order for just one sitting.  I recommend the calamari, the caprese (with lobster!), followed by the ravioli or the fettuccine ( with asparagus, stracchino cheese, and guanciale).

If it’s not a pasta day, the maiale (pork chop) and merluzzo (atlantic codfish) are favorites.  Sautéed spinach and neopolitan fries make the perfect sides.
