Soho/Tribeca anything great?

Papaya | Jun 8, 2009 10:48 AM

Have clients in town staying at the SoHo Grand. As a lifelong NYer and current Union Sq resident, was excited to check out a new place in SoHo or TriBeCa since I just don't really get down there for dinner. After some research am surprisingly having a tough time deciding on a place.

I'm looking for something relatively high end, but relaxed (so no Bouley or Chanterelle type resto). Would also love something that has a bit of life, which is what worries me about many of the places in Soho/Tribeca. For example, Matsugen sounds interesting but I have a vision of sitting in a relatively empty room with the sushi chefs looking bored.

Have already been and don't love: Balthazar, Lure, Hundred Acres, Zoe, City Hall and such.

I've seen some of the renewed interest in The Harrison because of their new chef, so may go with that but wish I could check out a new place. Also Blue Ribbon Brasserie seems like fun. Any other places I'm just not thinking of?
