Food & Drink

Lower Manhattan’s culinary history stretches back generations to the legendary Delmonico’s, America’s original fine dining institution, which first opened in 1837. Neighborhood standbys such as Bobby Van’s, Harry’s, Da Claudio, Morton’s and Capital Grille have been pillars of the food scene for years.

More recently, the likes of Nobu, Eataly, L’Appart, Crown Shy and The Fulton have established themselves in the district. Additionally, a number of new casual spots like Taim, Mighty Quinn Barbecue, David Chang’s Fuku and Blue Ribbon, have joined the dining landscape.

The latest generation of talented chefs have transformed the neighborhood into a magnetic culinary destination and Lower Manhattan has truly earned its reputation as a must-visit neighborhood for some of the best meals in the city.
