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.

Belle Reve is a sort of bar/gastropub that’s known to turn into a full on party from time to time. The food is good, but the partying is better.
Sushi Of Gari Tribeca
For us, there are few culinary pleasures in life that exceed sushi bar swagging at Sushi of Gari, watching an old master fish sculptor slice up some heavenly creations destined for our bellies. Unfortunately, this Gari location is our least favorite yet.
Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.

Dante is the rebirth of a beloved 100-year-old Greenwich Village restaurant. It’s ideal for a first date over drinks and small plates.
When it comes to FiDi, Augustine is pretty much as good as it gets. Think Balthazar, but for bankers, and with somewhat better food.
