Friday's Food & Wine: Fine Dining in NYC

I was chit chatting with my dad earlier today as he was on a train ride into New York City for a weekend of delicious food and broadway fun with Sue (my step mom) and some friends.  I was recommending some mouth-watering dishes from the menu at Tribeca Grill for them to try and right now I'm so wishing I was joining them for dinner.

Jay, myself and some friends spent a weekend in Manhattan back in October to celebrate Jay's 35th birthday and we had dinner at Tribeca Grill.  The Sommelier was very friendly and super helpful in selecting our wine and our server was awesome! We chatted them both up most of the evening and had a really great time.  They even brought out a complimentary dessert with a candle for Jay for his birthday!  Tribeca offers some of THE best food and wine I've ever tasted in my life.  The atmosphere is super comfortable & relaxing and the people who work there are so great and really make you feel like you're right at home.

We tried 3 apps, 3 entrees and 2 Pinot Noirs (the best one a wonderful birthday gift from my Dad & Sue) and all I have to say is DE-LISH to all of it!!!  These are the dishes and wines we tried and are HIGHLY recommended by yours truly :)

Cheers everyone!!

  1. Definitely a must-see restaurant for everyone that visits NYC! A bit on the pricey side but worth the spend. It's also a known celebrity hangout so you might find your self dining among stars!
