Tiny's & the Bar Upstairs

Top choice american in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

The rustic interior of this 1810 Tribeca town house – replete with antique wallpaper, salvaged wood paneling, original tin ceilings, pressed copper and marble bar tops, and handmade tiles – alone makes it worth a visit, but you won't regret staying for a meal or a cocktail. Food is modern American with French accents: perhaps seared duck with turnip and shallots or hand-dived scallops.

The wood-burning fireplace in the dining room makes it extra cozy on those chilly NYC winter evenings.
