TRI Bakery


We’re not quite sure what’s going on here. Apparently this place is a bakery during the daylight hours, serving great bread and stuff, but after dark it turns into a place that can be rented out to groups of co-workers, friends, etc. These events are catered by its next door neighbor, The Tribeca Grill. Unfortunately some places are popular because they are nice looking or trendy or owned by somebody famous, despite the quality of their food. Thus is the case with the grill. Besides, DeNiro owns the only two restaurants in TriBeCa, and if you don’t feel like sushi, this is your only option. So, go for the bread (if you are in that neighborhood for some reason), but skip the special events hosted by its neighbor. [MF]
