Ends Meat makes some seriously good sandwiches. Sure, Hometown does too - but sometimes you don’t feel like eating a huge mound of brisket or pastrami. And that’s when you should go to Ends Meat. Their beef neck sandwich has caramelized onions, thin slices of beef layered on top of one another, and just enough Thousand Island dressing to make its presence known. The first time we ate it, we immediately walked back over and asked where they get their (charred, crispy, fluffy) bread. “We make it,” they said. And that’s another reason why you should eat here.

Yves has good atmosphere, we'll give it that. But if you're looking to spend money on dinner in Tribeca, there are much better options.
Faun is an excellent neighborhood spot in Prospect Heights serving seasonal, Italian-inspired food. Eat pasta on their patio whenever possible.
Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.

Morgan’s BBQ is some of the best barbecue you can get without having to go down to Red Hook for Hometown.
Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
A long time Infatuation favorite. Blue Smoke is still serving some of the best BBQ you can find in NYC.
