Foursquare Tips

  • Marc Forgione's downtown restaurant is a Tribeca standout.
  • I can simply say right now that the staff at this restaurant is hands down the best in the city. Always welcoming, always accomodating. Impeccable service.
  • Started with the lobster chili, kampachin and eggplant ravioli (all a must). But just when we thought we were heading into a food coma.. we came, saw and conquered that mother effin' chicken!
  • One Michelin star.
  • Date night in TriBeCa means lobster to start and that chicken-for-two after, with lingering glances through the candlelight throughout.
  • You can't go wrong with any of the dishes here. The Arctic Char is among our favorites. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!
  • Eat the bread. You know you want to. Best meal I have had in awhile; try the chilled soup special whatever it is.
  • Get the kampachi appetizer
  • Rustic and inviting, Forgiones food is a mix of Italian cooking, French technique and a few Southeast Asian flavors. Get the juicy cooked-under-a-brick chicken and finish with the pumpkin souffl.
  • Nothing bad here, especially at the bar. If you're semi hungry & smart order a few apps & reap the benefits of amuse & amazing bread without even ordering an entree
  • Don't visit without trying the brick chicken, cooked until golden atop broccoli rabe and crispy potatoes. It's almost as good as the barbecued oysters with Cajun bchamel.
  • Its an earthier take on weekend brunch here where New Yorks reigning Iron Chef turns out thick waffles with fried quail and an ingenious Eggs Benny. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
  • Loved the Banana Souffle dessert.
  • Two musts: lobster chili and chicken under the brick for two. Out of this world good!
  • I dream about the bacon egg and cheese popper. Get it, you will not be disappointed
  • Loved the Jameson Banana cocktail
  • Have to do the chicken under a brick.
  • Go early to grab a chili lobster
  • Two words: suckling pig.
  • If you're a breast man, this is your place. I never knew chicken breast could be so amazingly delicious and so perfectly prepared - not ordering the chicken here is a crime!
