Food and drink
In addition to a great cocktail list (like Old Fashioneds and Manhattans), the tiny menu is also a standout. Try the Swedish meatballs and the comforting, though calorie-filled, macaroni and cheese.
Oozing with charm, in this beautifully-restored carriage house you feel like a real insider with the combo of gorgeous downtown types and neighborhood fixtures. I hate to even share the secret.
Though the whole vibe is slightly indifferent, the bartenders treat each cocktail like it’s a uni final. Same with the food.
On the far reaches of Tribeca by the Hudson - you wouldn’t guess there was a stylish lounge on this quiet block unless you had the address.
It’s not cheap, main courses run from US$14 and a three-course meal without wine is about US$30 per person but I think the combo of ambience and food makes it worthwhile.
Tables to book
With a no reservations policy you’ll want to come early evening if you want to snag a table. It’s also great for a lazy afternoon cocktail.
