"For the past quarter-century, the vinous offering at Tribeca, with its superb collection of California, Burgundy, and the Rhône the pick of its wide-ranging international selection, has been at the head of the pack...Plus the prices are really moderate in comparison with some of the other top lists in this competition."

For seven nights,* Bâtard will honor Chef Witzigmann with a $75 prix fixe menu of his signature dishes.
*June 29, 30; July 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 (Our regular menu will be available on these nights as well.)
Eckart Witzigmann was named "Chef of the Century" by Gault Millau in 1994, an honor he shares with just three other people: Paul Bocuse, Joël Robuchon and Frédy Girardet.
Witzigmann was born in Austria in 1941. Early in his career, his outstanding talent was recognized and promoted by the best in the business, notably Paul Bocuse, Roger Vergé, the Troisgros brothers and Paul Haeberlin. After honing his craft in some of the world’s most prestigious restaurants, he opened Aubergine in Munich in 1978. In 1979, Aubergine became the first restaurant in Germany to be awarded the much-coveted three stars from Michelin. Aubergine retained that rating until it closed in 1993.
A beloved teacher and mentor to generations of young chefs (including Markus Glocker), Witzigmann has also authored a number of highly successful cookbooks. Today he travels the globe as a consultant, developing innovative restaurant concepts for clients as diverse as the Japanese Juchheim group and the Salzburg airport.
“The chef of kings and gods,” as The New York Times called him, has cooked for Queen Elizabeth II, King Hassan of Morocco, the Maharaja of Jaipur, Mikhail Gorbachev, George W. Bush, and Valerie Giscard d’Estaing, among other dignitaries. But Witzigmann does not play favorites: “For me, every guest is equally important and I always make an effort to treat every one of them the same."
A Special Menu to Honor Chef Eckart Witzigmann on His 75th Birthday
caviar, sour cream, celery
asparagus, passion fruit vinaigrette
heaven & earth of foie gras
calvados, apple, black truffle
lamb loin wrapped in aubergine
baumkuchen, lemon, red pepper jus
caramelized puff pastry, vanilla, champagne ice cream

As I walked through the streets of Tribeca recently, observing the urban hustle and bustle of this singular neighborhood we’ve inhabited for over thirty years, it was easy to see how much the area has changed. But what brings the neighborhood its enduring charm are restaurants like Tribeca Grill, Bâtard, and Nobu.
Tribeca Grill is a warm, welcoming restaurant with good food and a Wine Spectator Grand Award-Winning Wine list. A restaurant with substance and integrity, it’s anchored the first two floors of the Tribeca Film Center for over 26 years. From the welcome you receive at the front door, to the friendly service at the table, you experience what one journalist endearingly called “a neighborhood restaurant for the whole world.”
Bâtard continues a tradition of excellence in the location that once housed Montrachet and Corton. Last year it earned the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in America, as well as three stars from The New York Times and a Michelin star. The restaurant embodies casual elegance, with stunning food and wine in a comfortable, unpretentious setting. Chef Markus Glocker’s modern European cuisine is vibrant, accessible and an excellent value.
Nobu New York and Nobu Next Door helped introduce the world to New Style Japanese cuisine. The diverse menu is beautifully plated; the flavors are memorable and riveting, and yet remarkable in their simplicity.
What links these restaurants is professionalism and pride in offering each guest a mini-vacation from the cares of the world. When you dine with us, you are catered to and entertained, while enjoying comfort and a sense of well-being. At the soul of a restaurant are many dedicated people who work very hard to bring this experience to you. And every single day, they do it very well.
-- Tracy Nieporent, Partner and Director of Marketing
Markus Glocker's modern European cuisine is now available at the bar.
"Go for the Burgundy—whether the older vintages that Jason Jacobeit has sourced direct from winery cellars and priced attractively, or the great buys he’s unearthed from less storied corners—and stay for Markus Glocker’s opulent Austro-French food."
Thanks to The Daily Meal for the recognition!
"We liked the way this list starts with about three dozen bottles described as 'Dave's Picks' — uniquely beautiful, ready-to-drink wines…at sensible prices. Dave would be the restaurant's wine director, David Gordon, who has chosen an interesting group for this purpose."
The Bâtard chef is in the running for Best Chef NYC!
"Twenty-six years ago, Tribeca Grill opened under the ownership of actor Robert De Niro and restaurateur Drew Nieporent—with investments from Bill Murray, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Lou Diamond Phillips and Christopher Walken—in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood of the same name. Within six months, David Gordon, now 55, was hired as a manager.
"In the quarter-century since, Gordon's role evolved into "wine steward," then "wine director" as he builtTribeca Grill's program to 2,200 selections. The restaurant earned a Wine Spectator Grand Award in 2002 with "the biggest list in the world of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, easily," and some of the lowest markups in town. In his career, the self-described "schmo from Brooklyn" has created lists for every sort of cuisine, from New French at Myriad Restaurant Group's Corton (now closed) to Japanese fusion at Nobu to airplane, as a consultant to Continental. Gordon, who has worked behind the scenes at Wine Spectator'sWine Experience on the sommelier team, has also mentored a flock of other sommeliers who've gone on to open highly accoladed restaurants of their own."

Forbes recently revealed their 2015 edition of "All-Star Eateries In New York" and Tribeca Grill, Bâtard, Nobu and Nobu 57 all made the list. Bâtard, Nobu New York, and Nobu 57 received the highest rating of four stars, among some ofthe city's best restaurants. Tribeca Grill also received special recognition - "Celebrating 25 years, this true American brasserie robustly continues to serve distinctive dishes and to stock an amazing wine cellar."
This year, Tribeca Grill celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a celebration attended by its neighbors, friends, and family and New York Magazine got an inside look. Guests were treated to bites by Tribeca Grill's current and past chefs, along with wine selections by some of the city's best sommeliers and TG alums. To view the full piece, click here.
As the 2016 Michelin star ratings were released this week, it was announced that Bâtard retained its Michelin star.
Years ago, Tribeca Grill's Wine Director David Gordon and (at the time) Montrachet's Daniel Johnnes began a tradition that still lives on today and was featured in The New York Times this week. Last week, a group of New York's top sommeliers came together at Peking Duck House, with wines in hand and ready to continue the tradition. Patrick Cappiello, currently wine director at Rebelle and Pearl and Ash, formerly a Trieca Grill employee, now hosts the get togethers about once a month.
"The tradition began 25 years ago with two of Cappiello’s mentors, Daniel Johnnes and David Gordon, who worked within walking distance at the now-closed Montrachet and the TriBeCa Grill. “We used to bring customers who we’d enjoy spending a little time with,” Johnnes says. In 2001, Gordon extended a Peking Duck House lunch invite to Cappiello, then brand-new to New York and working for Gordon as a waiter. The guest list — originally “just four or five of us,” says Capiello — has grown as the ranks of the city’s sommeliers have swelled. But not much else has changed, including the four-course menu."

In a recent piece by New York Post detailing the varying (and often overpriced) cost of wine in restaurants around New York, Tribeca Grill is highlighted as one of a "handful of places that don't inflate prices over time just because they can."
David Gordon, wine director for Myriad Restaurant Group, is quoted in the article describing the price of a 1996 Château Lafite, which goes for $1,500 at Tribeca Grill instead of $4,000 at other restaurants.

Hangout for the likes of the late James Gandolfini, Meryl Streep and De Niro himself, Tribeca Grillpledges allegiance to hearty American cuisine and an award-winning global wine list.

The Street spoke to Jason Jacobeit, head sommelier at Tribeca Grill and Bâtard, about Tribeca Grill's extensive wine list. Check out the full piece here!
"The restaurant has 26,000 bottles of wine in its inventory, representing about 2,300 unique wine selections. The collection, stored among four cellars, is the result of buying virtually everything on release for the past 25 years, as well as occasionally buying rare and fine wines at auction.
"The wines we have in our cellar from the early 1990s or late 1980s were literally purchased two and half decades ago and we can guarantee the authenticity and provenance, and that the wines been stored properly," Jacobeit says. "Everything we have has been purchased by us. And our wine list is saturated with value."

The example and standards he set will always be part of the Nobu experience. We love you Shin-San, and your memory will always inspire us.
Although Vacqueyras wines pair nicely with food and age well, wines from the region are rarely seen on restaurant wine lists. Tribeca Grill's wine director, David Gordon, spoke with The Wall Street Journal about Vacqueyras on November 10, 2013.
"David Gordon, wine director of Tribeca Grill, presides over one of the most Rhône-centric restaurant wine lists in New York, with a prodigious selection of Châteauneuf-du-Papes and several Vacqueyras and Gigondas. Mr. Gordon feels that the latter overshadows the former—"perhaps because Gigondas is better known," he speculated in an email, though he added that Gigondas has become rather pricey. By contrast, he considers Vacqueyras to be an excellent value and "a good wine to teach people about the Rhône."'
Check out the rest of the article here.
Tribeca Grill was named one of the 12 Best Restaurants in New York for Wine! "Over the years, the wine director David Gordon has put together a wonderful list of older bottles that are gently priced. In one area, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, I’ve never seen a deeper list", described Eric Asimov, wine critic for The Times in the article from October 8, 2013.
Tribeca Grill is one of only seven NYC Restaurants in 2013 to have been awarded The Grand Award by The Wine Spectator, its highest rating. The other restaurants include 21, Daniel, Eleven Madison Park, Per Se, Veritas, and Del Posto.
Nobu Next Door, the iconic 3 Star restaurant next to Nobu New York, is debuting an inventive new Brunch menu for the first time ever.
The new brunch menu will include a variety of eclectiv new, savory dishes in addition to Nobu classics. Among the savory new dishes being introduced are Nobu's interpretation of "Bagels and Lox" with Crispy Rice, "Chicken Karaage with Green Tea Waffles and Pecan Miso Butter", "Washu Pastrami with Jidori Egg", "Blueberry and Yuzu Soba Pancakes," "Sobagaki Oatmeal," "Lobster and Grits," "Scrambled Egg Donburi" and various other items.
