The Ultimate Guide to Tribeca Dining from Joy Gryson

10/24/2013

Joy Gryson, the designer behind the unfussy bag line IIIBeCa, loves everything about her neighborhood—and her line’s namesake—but one of the things she sweats the most? The food. Here, the NYC native shows us the best eating—from steamed buns to burgers—in the 10013. —koun bae

Nobu Next Door
“At Nobu you have to make reservations, but Nobu Next Door actually doesn’t take reservations—so you can only do walk-in. It’s great people-watching—I always see some celebrities. The waiters know us there. For us, it’s weirdly like a great neighborhood joint, but of course we don’t go there too often because it’s pretty expensive.”

Zutto
“I’m Korean myself—so I love Asian food—and Zutto has a great mixture of Asian food. I love their steamed buns—especially this one they call the Gangnam bun with pork and kimchi in it. It’s delicious!”

The Odeon
“It’s a staple of Tribeca—everyone knows where The Odeon is. They have amazing burgers, and I love the mac-and-cheese there with the crusty top and the breadcrumbs. My daughter and I love that.”

Kori
“Kori is a traditional Korean restaurant. That’s my Korean staple, and I know I’m going to have it every Friday. My daughter is kind of picky with food, and the fact that she likes any Korean food is amazing. I was adopted—my parents aren’t Korean, so we don’t have a lot of Korean cultural things that we do. This is her exposure. I like the kimchi stew, and I always add in tofu and rice cake, making it our own little concoction.”

Marc Forgione
“Marc Forgione is a pretty famous chef. He just opened two new restaurants in Tribeca, but this is his first one. He is really creative and makes really interesting food. I only actually like going there during the wintertime because his meals are very hearty. The filet mignon is amazing, and my husband loves the pork tenderloin.”

Edwards
“Edwards is our go-to place every weekend for eggs benedict. We love the french fries and the chipotle sauce and the quesadillas.”

Warren 77
“Warren 77 is like a sports pub, but it’s great for when you’re feeling really casual. They have these little videogames on the tables—which my daughter loves. It’s owned by a former NHL player Sean Avery, who also worked for Vogue. We’re actually going there in a few minutes!”
(77 Warren St.)
