Saturday night in / near the Financial District

cookie monster | Sep 18, 2013 11:59 AM

I've done enough research to realize that the Financial District doesn't exactly have a lively restaurant scene, especially on the weekend. However, that is where I will be staying this coming Saturday - Thursday as I have use of a friend's fabulous apartment. I'm looking for a place to meet up with a friend following my arrival Saturday evening. It'll probably be 9 -10:00pm by the time we get wherever we're going, but I'll be on Pacific time and therefore in need of something to eat if not a full sit down dinner. So my ideal spot is some place we can walk into w/o a reservation or a long wait, and have a glass of wine or 2 and a bite or 2 at the bar. Please forgive my still somewhat hazy sense of Manhattan geography, but Tribeca seems like the closest neighborhood with any sort of restaurant scene. Would any of these places fit what I'm looking for - Marc Forgione, Locanda Verde, Terroir, The Harrison? Other ideas? Thank you.
