The romantic Milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Havana. Cuba offers live music and a menu filled with delicious traditional cuisine. The restaurant offers a fascinating and charming escape to its own "Little Havana on Thompson Street".

"I enjoy myself every time I dine here and they make the best gazpacho I have ever had. Of course I should have known it wouldn't be on the menu in November, instead I had a delicious butternut squash soup. Our party had the crispy red snapper, arroz con pollo, skirt steak and peruvian corn- all amazing.
Wonderful service and atmosphere, I highly recommend a visit.

Estancia 460 reflects the Italian and Spanish culinary influences in Argentina. From the extra thin crusted pizzas, pastas, sizzling shrimp and grilled fish, paella and grass-fed beef to the wine list that is diverse with offerings from South America, Spain, Portugal and Italy. Estancia translates as a ranch house and the restaurant emulates that with its white washed brick walls, high ceilings, wooden tables and chairs. The crowd feels like an extended family which many come to dine with large groups to enjoy the Parillada, a mixed grill of meats, or for romantic dinners. Estancia has been feeding the locals and Tribeca celebs since 1995 and has developed an extended family outside the neighborhood that choose us as their "go to" place for hearty unpretentious fare in a low key and intimate setting. Come and enjoy our sultry Latin sound track and start off with a Latin Manhattan and end your night with crepes and dulce de leche!

Derived from the Hindi word meaning passion, Junoon delivers on the promise of its moniker with an authentic, yet elegantly modern take on Indian cuisine. Restaurateur Rajesh Bhardwaj, inspired by his deep affinity and commitment to the food and culture of his native India, has assembled a talented team, who share his same vision including celebrated chef and cookbook author, Vikas Khanna, helming Junoon's kitchen as Executive Chef. <br /><br />Don't forget to peak into Junnon's one-of-a-kind Spice Room where an array of fresh spices are ground daily and made into a unique blend to be used in the marinades and sauces for the day.

"This is truly upscale Indian dining, nothing like the restaurants on Curry Hill. The service was outstanding and there were menu items I've never seen anywhere else. The desserts were off the hook. If you're a fan of Indian cuisine you must try it."

Our restaurant specializes in genuine French dishes with a nod to the south of France. Please enjoy our casual atmosphere with a cold cocktail or glass (or two!) of wine. We offer French classics such as onion soup, coq au vin, steak frites and some slight variations with the likes of daube de boeuf and ravioli with mushrooms. We also have many vegetarian and fish options. Come join us, we welcome your visit!

It is with pleasure that we invite you to dine at Tre Stelle where modern Italian cuisine meets tradition. A restaurant that has a fresh approach in a sophisticated and fun atmosphere. The authenticity of our regional cuisine mixed with a comfortable and communal vibe emphasizes Italian-centric philosophy. Our contemporary approach to Italian cuisine will surely excite the palate and should be refreshed with classic "Dolce Vita" cocktails created by Bar Master Richard Boccato of Dutch Kills. Each night Tre Stelle offers an happy hour from 4 pm to 7 pm. The concept is an important part of Italian life as a way of socializing and winding down after a day of work. It entails an elaborate spread of complimentary gourmet small plates when a cocktail or glass of wine is ordered. Tre Stelle opens at 7:00 am and is the perfect spot for the "Power Breakfast" when one can't wait for our Pre-fix Power Lunch menu (3-course meal for $19 a person.

"We went Halloween evening and enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is cozy and welcoming with a super friendly staff and attentive service. The food is not gourmet but "comfort". Even though it was crowded it was also quiet which was refreshing. So many NYC eateries are just deafening.We'll definitely be back."

Tiny's & the Bar Upstairs is a three story townhouse located on W. Broadway in the heart of Tribeca. The building dates to 1810 and much of the original materials have been restored and overlayed with whimsical American finish detail. Siblings Matt, Jack and Ana Abramcyk conceived of a space where you can come to eat, drink, or just talk over a glass of wine. The sibling trio complements the warm-hearted atmosphere and furthers the artistic spirit of Tiny’s making it a true family run neighborhood place. For Tiny’s, Chef Paul Nanez has created lunch, brunch, and dinner menus that blend classic technique with local market ingredients. The menu reflects Modern American cuisine with Italian and French influences.

The warm, cozy interiors feature original brickwork, vaulted ceilings, a skylight and an open kitchen anchored by our custom wood-fired grill, the heart and soul of the restaurant. <br></br> If you experience any issues making a reservation, please call the restaurant directly.
