fresh - 105 Reade St between West Broadway and Church St. (Tribeca)
An elegant Tribeca-based seafood restaurant with the sweetest, most flavorful fish and shellfish accompanied by the freshest season vegetables, herbal essences and spices instead of heavy sauces and creams, allowing the ingredients to blossom on the plate. The picturesque room with inspirations taken from the beach is reason alone to visit this exciting and friendly restaurant.
The American - 235 Mulberry St between Prince and Spring St. (Nolita)
For the past decade, the streets of Nolita have been strewn with fashionistas and hipsters. But today, the NYC hot-spot which is north of Little Italy (ah…Nolita) is frequented with many a Bugaboo. And, if there was ever a better time for a cool diner in the heart of Soho, it's now. The back room at The American is a fun little room for the kiddies to play in while moms meet and if they're really lucky can sneak in an early dinner as well. The food is quite delish (got a burger or fried chicken hankering?) and the desserts will make your tired eyes roll to the back of your head.
