This past weekend, the Mister and I checked out Greenwich Street Tavern (GST) in Tribeca for brunch. I had previously heard about this joint through my "downtown finance foodie" friends -- given its close proximity to the Wall Street banks, GST is known as the go to spot for bro-ey bankers in search of booze after (or sometimes during) work. Since I was intrigued by GST's new brunch menu that promised an upscale twist on American pub fare (and because the Mister wanted to eat at a place where he could watch his English Premier League matches), this resto was a no-brainer pick for some weekend nosh.
When we walked in, we noticed the after work banker crowd was replaced by the local banker family crowd -- kids and Bugaboo Cameleon3 strollers in tow. The dark wood interiors, exposed brick walls and leather seats were cleaner and posher than what you would expect from a typical pub (but it is Tribeca, so not too much of a surprised there). I started with a cold pressed watermelon juice, which was a delicious and refreshing start to the meal!
Greenwich Street Tavern provides the pub-like experience in a (thankfully) comfortable, friendly and non-grungy atmosphere that appeals to both families and suits alike. I don't make it down to Tribeca often (as my home base is with the Midtown bankers), but the next time I do, I'll be sure to stop by GST again to check out more of their food and drink!
