Tasty Food and Eye-catching Art come together at Smyth Tavern

Smyth Tavern features classic American tavern design elements like rich mahogany wood paneling and red leather booths. The restaurant features a rotating collection of artwork curated by local Downtown galleries so you can chow down while admiring the beautiful illustrations.

Try their raw bar options like Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail with dijonnaise and Salmon Tiradito with serrano chili, miso yuzu vinaigrette, and sesame oil. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention their incredible signature Smyth Burger, made with bacon onion jam, American cheese, special sauce, onion rings, and hand-cut fries. Are you getting hungry yet? It wouldn’t be a tavern if it didn’t sport an impressive drink menu. Their house cocktail list specializes in classics like Rosé Negroni with Isolation Proof Summer Gin, Inferno Bitter, and Lo-fi Gentian Amaro, and Pineapple Daiquiri with Ten to One White Rum, fresh pineapple, lime, and celery syrup.

Mena is your Ticket to South America in Tribeca

Chef Victoria Blamey, formerly of Gotham Bar and Grill, has spread her wings and launched her very own restaurant. Infusing her Chilean roots into her creative dishes and highlighting little-known techniques is what has foodies excited over this new, buzzy Tribeca spot. Dishes like cholgas secas — “a preservation technique from the Aysén region – is one being lost to urban Chile, and virtually unknown to the rest of the world,” Victoria says on Instagram — is one notable example. The dish is mussels served with charred caraflex cabbage, onion glaze, and fermented potato bread. Although the menu is small, it is described as “technique-driven, globally inspired plates seen through a South American lens.” Try the Vermont Woodbury pheasant prepared with dry-aged mole, pantrucas with oxtail broth, fermented kohlrabi, nixtamalized corn, and white rice peas.

Tribeca Treasure Greca Goes All-Vegetarian Greek With New Menu

When owner Tim Galis converted his Greek restaurant to all-vegetarian fare, he attributed this to a “major transformation personally” after recovering from a heart attack.  Now fully revamped with an original, nutritious and organic menu, Greca’s new name is Greca Vegetarian Greek. Located at  452 Washington St between Watts and Desbrosses, the new Greca offers a smaller but diverse menu.  A popular dish among locals is the portobello gyro made with portobello mushroom, cheese, parsley, tomato, and red onions on a crisply toasted flatbread. The bakery side is also a fan-favorite, and from what we hear, Greca’s orange olive oil cake is a must-have dessert. Tim Galis calls his restaurant the “first ever vegetarian greek restaurant in New York,” and it might just be one of the best too.
