American Cut is LDV Hospitality’s new American, signature steakhouse, brought to life by Iron Chef Marc Forgione. Located in the heart of Tribeca at 363 Greenwich Street, between Franklin and Harrison.<br /> <br />Our 180-seat restaurant combines modern design with art deco accents, culminating in a monumental space filled with fine food, spirits and culinary prowess.<br />We invite you to indulge in our spectacular Tomahawk Ribeye Chop for two or try our Seafood Tasting featuring our signature Chili Lobster paired with a glass of wine from our extensive wine list.<br />With two private dining rooms and a private bar for groups of all sizes, we are the perfect location for intimate special events, large-scale after-work parties and everything in between.

"Simply put, a fantastic steakhouse in a city full of great steakhouses. The porterhouse was cooked perfectly and served with a bone marrow reduction (which, needless to say, you won't find at your standard steakhouse) and a homemade steak sauce, both of which were terrific. The sides were also out of this world - apple potato latkes and a glazed carrot that was unlike anything else I had ever tasted. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly, and explained everything in perfect detail. Kudos to everyone for a great dining experience, looking forward to returning!"

ilili is New York’s premier contemporary Lebanese restaurant offering inspired Mediterranean cuisine. The menu mixes authentic Lebanese dishes with modern Mediterranean influences to create a culinary journey for the palate and senses. Complementing the international cuisine, ilili offers an impressive wine list that includes wines from all over the world and features favorites from Lebanon and the Mediterranean. The restaurant’s decor echoes the diverse menu, combining the architectural richness of Old Lebanon with an attitude and style that is unmistakably New York. A DJ sets the mood with music from around the globe and soft, amber lighting punctuated by candles create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere in which to enjoy a relaxed meal. The cuisine, décor and ambience come together to create a new world for your senses to explore, whispering gently in your ear, ilili.

TAO Group, the pioneers of the Pan-Asian trend that swept New York City over a decade ago, unveils the evolution of the TAO brand with the opening of TAO Downtown. TAO Group will mark the next iteration of the brand, taking over the spaces formerly home to Hiro Ballroom and Matsuri located beneath the Maritime Hotel and will seat up to 400 throughout the restaurant, with approximately 300 seats in the main dining room alone.<br />

"Absolutely outstanding, plain and simple. The fact that there was a table open at a reasonable hour on a Friday blew my mind; would definitely recommend ordering a bunch of small plates or dim sum platters and sharing everything, rather than doing main plates, although the rare tuna was fantastic in its own right. The crispy rice tuna and scallop/shrimp rolls were incredible!"

For serious steak-connoisseurs, Benjamin is a must visit. The restaurant, located in the heart of Manhattan, offers the finest and carefully selected prime USDA meat, dry aged to perfection. Wide selection of wines and vintages for pairing. The 5,000 square foot restaurant features a ten-foot working fireplace, rich chocolate brown leather seating, oak wood paneling, vaulted decorative ceiling, and modern brass amber toned chandeliers.

"Considering the sheer number of times I've eaten here in the past, we were effectively treated like we didn't exist. Reservation was for 7:15 and we didn't sit until 7:45 (if diners are half an hour late OpenTable docks you for not holding up your end of the bargain, so why aren't restaurants held to the same standard?) Host staff was rude and inattentive, general "holier-than-thou" vibe. This is aside from the fact that we watched *several* parties of 2 come in after us and sit before us, so I'm rather displeased with the whole ordeal.
Food was overcooked but it's steak so how bad could it be. Waiters were rude and acted like they were above everyone sitting there. Considering the glut of steakhouses I may look elsewhere in the future."

After exploring downtown or a long day at the office, Tribeca's Ivy's Bistro is the perfect neighborhood spot to watch the sun set over the Hudson River during the Spring and Summer months. Enjoy a glass of wine and a tasty meal from Ivy's diverse menu of American cuisine. <br><br>Great for weekday business lunches, romantic date nights or weekend family brunches.
