An old stomping ground when Cleo’s mom lived a block away. This Andrew Carmellini establishment in The Greenwich Hotel serves delicious Italian fare.
Smith & Mills
The greatest little spot for a drink in TriBeCa and great oysters and burgers too.
Another TB favorite, from Matt Abramcyk’s mini-empire. Get the meatballs!
In the space that used to be Le Zinc (that makes us sound so old!!), Blaue Gans is Kurt Gutenbrunner’s most unpretentious spot and we love it for herring, sausages, schnitzel and great Austrian and German wines.
Steak frites, martinis, oysters, done.
Their pugliese is our favorite bread in New York.
