Specializing in fresh seafood and lobster and assorted steaks and chops, Smith & Wollensky is well recognized for its healthy portions, seasoned service staff and pop Americana ambience. The painted wood exterior is dark forest green trim on sparkling white with latticework trim. The elegant interior has turn-of-the-century appeal and design elements including shining brass, dark wood accents and polished wood floors.

Tribeca Grill
Enjoy a $200 gift certificate towards dining. Tribeca Grill is co-owned by renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent and legendary actor Robert De Niro, which opened in 1990 and was instrumental in putting the Tribeca neighborhood on the map. Its all-star roster of investors includes such luminaries as Bill Murray, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Sean Penn, Ed Harris, Lou Diamond Philips, Russell Simmons, Peter Max, Christopher Walken and Harvey & Bob Weinstein of the Weinstein Company.

Now in its 21st year, Tribeca Grill has become one of New York's downtown restaurant landmarks. Executive Chef Stephen Lewandowski's market-driven menu features robust dishes, complemented by an extensive wine list featuring the world's largest selection of Chteauneuf-du-Pape (over 300) as well as many rare California Cabernet verticals. The Grill offers a 1,900 selection, 20,000 bottle list and is one of only seven restaurants in New York to receive the Grand Award from Wine Spectator Magazine.

The restaurant is located on the first two floors of the Tribeca Film Center, headquarters for Mr. De Niro's film company, Tribeca Productions, the Tribeca Film Festival and the Weinstein Company. The building is a historic 1905 warehouse with high ceilings, original exposed brick, large mahogany bar, and oversized windows, that reflects the industrial character of the Tribeca neighborhood. The restaurant also serves as a permanent gallery for the artwork of Mr. De Niro's father, the late Robert De Niro Sr.
