Restaurants in Tribeca NYC: Edward’s NYC

Storefront of Edward's restaurant in Tribeca Manhattan.

It's not like downtown Glenwood luxury highrise Manhattan apartment residents –at Tribeca Bridge Tower, or Liberty Plaza, or Barclay Tower–are exactly hurting for good places to eat… There are a ton of great restaurants in Downtown NYC. Heck, even Battery Park City, long a culinary wasteland, has suddenly become fertile restaurant-opening territory, what with Danny Meyer's Blue Smoke and North End Grill, the spanking new Atrio at the Conrad Hotel, the upcoming Harry's Italian outpost, and so on. Restaurants in Tribeca NYC have always been trendy as well as the nightspots, from Odean back in the day to Super Linda right this second. That said, there's always room for a casual neighborhood spot with an interesting, something-for-everyone menu, and prices with which anyone can feel comfortable. For restaurnts in Tribeca NYC, Edward's NYC fits that niche quite nicely indeed.

Restaurants in Downtown NYC: Edward's Restaurant NYC

Edward's Restaurant NYC has been serving up its bistro-ish fare on West Broadway since 2001: burgers and salads, a couple of pizza options, a few fried appetizers, a handful of pasta- and protein-based entrees… the type of varied yet unthreatening menu that makes this sort of establishment work for families, for dates, for a bunch of buddies, for a quick bite dining solo. We've stopped into Edward's Tribeca many times over the years, and though we certainly wouldn't go too far out of our way for a meal here, we've always left feeling reasonably happy and definitely satisfied. Take the early supper we just had last week at Edward's NYC, for example. We started with the Frisee Salad, as we often do, because the greens are always fresh and crunchy, and the blue cheese chunks creamy, and the mustardy dressing drizzled appropriately. But really? For us, the Frisee Salad at Edward's West Broadway is all about the chewy, smoky, bacon lardons, of which there many. And roasted garlic fans, take note: the Edward's Tribeca kitchen LOADS up this baby with spreadable cloves. 

Edward's Café Tribeca Burger with cheese and fries.

Next up was the Edwards Café Tribeca Burger, with cheese, of course (cheddar), and the standard though always fresh and generously portioned toppings: lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion. The meat's fine here, cooked the way we order it (medium rare), and with enough beefy goodness to hold its own under all the condiments. Nothing special, nothing Top 10, but nonetheless a solid dinner. The fries need salt, which is easy to fix, and they're usually nice and crisp. And you could easily split this (or any other) salad/starter and burger/sandwich meal between the two of you, and walk away plenty full. Note: owner Edward Youkilis hails from the midwest, and honors his heritage by throwing a Cincinnati Night party on the last Monday of every month, packing the menu with food from that Ohio town, including Skyline Chili (which they combine with spaghetti, per local custom, apparently) Montgomery Inn Ribs, LaRosa’s Pizza and Graeter’s Ice Cream. We've never been to Edward's Cincinnati Night, but hear it's (gut-busting) blast.
