I am moving to the southern tip of Battery Park City, and I am looking for someplace (cafe? cofeeshop?) where I could work over a leisurely meal during weekday mornings or afternoons. If the food is great, that's a plus, but as this neighborhood seems to be pretty restaurant-poor, I know it would not be practical to be picky on this point. Does anyone know of anything that might be within walking distance?
If all else fails, any friendly neighborhood cafes/coffeeshops in far southwest Tribecca?
I know there are restaurants in the World Financial Center, but I just can't stand the atmosphere there - it reminds me too much of suburban malls and bad conference hotels...
Any suggestions will be welcomed with exuberant enthusiasm... :)
