Locanda Verde in Tribeca is a great NYC restaurant for boozy brunch, brunch in general, business meals, casual dates, celebrity sightings, first dates, girls’ dinners, large groups, lunch, people watching, entertaining out of town friends, parent visits and small plates. Here are some more details:
Good For Boozy Brunch, Casual Brunch and Group Brunch: The cocktails are delicious and it’s a great place to relax with small plates (the sheep’s milk ricotta – do it) while sipping on a few. It’s not a party but you can drink away the afternoon in a quiet atmosphere.
Good For Business Meals: Those in suits always make up a healthy majority of this crowd and it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week.
Good For Casual Dates/First Dates: Best if you sit at the bar which should be easy as it’s spacious and there are usually seats available. Otherwise, the restaurant as a whole isn’t intimidating (other than, maybe, the crowd) so it’s a good spot for a casual dinners.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: Robert De Niro is a co-owner which means his A-List friends, such as Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea Handler and Meryl Streep can often be spotted there as well.
Locanda Verde’s Address: 377 Greenwich (at N. Moore – Tribeca)
