New York City is a mecca for the food and wine experience. The Tribeca Film Festival takes place in Manhattan, in the neighborhood of Tribeca on the lower west side. CineVino’s coverage of the Tribeca Film Festival just wouldn’t seem complete unless we featured some of our favorite wine bars and restaurants around Tribeca and within the New York City area.
Terrior Wine Bar
If we had to choose one wine bar in New York City, this would probably be our favorite wine bar. The energy is alive, the crowd feels like they are happy to be there. The food is paired very well, including Italian tapas, delicious cheese plates, and the staff might be the best part! They are knowledgable, friendly and do everything they can to make you feel at home.
The wine list is exceptional. You can tell the sommelier and co-owner, Paul Grieco, put some dedicated time into the wine menu. I feel their Riesling win program stands out especially.
We recommend heading over for happy hour. It’s about an eight minute walk from the Tribeca Film Festival hub. 24 Harrison St, New York, NY 10013
Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Grill has received many great awards for their wine and food orientation. We cannot mention wine and food during the Tribeca Film Festival and not mention Tribeca Grill. The wine list is expansive with varieties from all over the world. 375 Greenwich St.New York , NY 10013
Local & Vine
When wanting an introduction to local wines from New York and the surrounding wine regions, Local & Vine is the place to go. They have a good selection of wines and small eats with a local flair. 282 Hudson St, New York, NY 10013
The newly opened, Frenchette is a French brasserie quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best restaurants in New York City. Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson, the two chefs who helped inspire great NYC restaurants such as Balthazar and Minetta Tavern, now have their own restaurant serving fabulous traditional French cuisine.
What intrigues me most about Frenchette is their love and respect for Natural Wines and pairing foods with natural wines. Frenchette offers a natural wine list from Jorge Riera, an alum of natural wine destinations Contra and Wildair 241 W Broadway, New York, NY 10013
The Tribeca Film Festival hub is located in the heart of Manhattan’s thriving food and wine scene, so finding a place to eat and celebrate shouldn’t be an issue. We suggest calling and making reservations in advance when possible and plan ahead to take advantage of the most of Manhattan while attending the festival.
