A Summer Day Cafe


A Summer Day Cafe is an Italian restaurant in the same Tribeca building as Holy Ground (the two restaurants also share an owner). Unlike Holy Ground, which is in the basement, this place is at street level, with big windows and lots of plants. The Italian-leaning menu has dishes ranging from fried pizza dough to black bass crudo and roast chicken, and they range from solid to very good. The prices are high, but we blame Tribeca for that.

Holy Ground

Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
