Financial District

Restaurants

2 West

Ritz-Carlton Hotel, 2 West Street
New York City, NY 10004
212.344.0800
http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/Properties/BatteryPark/Dining/2WestRestaurant/Default.htm

The food is colorful and the formal French cuisine leans more toward steakhouse than bistro. And to many, that makes it the best of both worlds. Order a steak and along comes the saucier to your table with a half-dozen marinades to choose from. Being the Ritz-Carlton, you can expect the service that is associated with the name.


 

American Park at the Battery

Battery Park, 17 State Street
New York City, NY 10004
212.809.5508

Located right in the park, there's no beating the harbor views at this traditional eatery. While the steak and lamb are excellent, seafood is the true standout. Grilled bass prepared in a wood oven is one of the house specialties. The lobster salad is also a good bet. If you really want to go against the grain, get the pasta.


 

City Hall

131 Duane Street
New York City, NY 10013
212.227.7777

To pair with the delicious food there are 600 bottles of wine here, many available by the glass. And as if that weren’t enough of an incentive, there's the authentic 1920s interior that harkens back to its olden days as a shoe factory. Catering to a slightly older, more upscale crowd, this has been a popular downtown haunt for years.


 

Jeremy's Ale House

228 Front Street
New York City, NY 10038
212.964.3537

Jeremy's laid back atmosphere, cheap beer and "tasty but really bad for you" bar food continue to draw in a steady crowd. Beware of weekends. Depending on the day, you might feel like you stumbled into a frat house. But more often than not, it's a good place to get a heady pitcher and some honest grub.


 

Les Halles Downtown

15 John Street
New York City, NY 10038
212.285.8585
http://www.leshalles.net/ny_downtown.php

This is the same great French Bistro fare as its uptown sibling on Park and 28th. The Steak Frites is particularly outstanding. The other dishes are not quite extraordinary, but still way above average. The crowd gets pretty lively, especially after work hours are through.


 

Mark Joseph Steakhouse

261 Water Street
New York City, NY 10038
212.277.0020

Perfect for those who wish Peter Luger's weren't all the way "over there." No need to trek all the way to Brooklyn for a huge slab of Porterhouse, now you can stay on this side of the river. Mark Joseph is right up there in quality with Luger's but with a very different atmosphere. Instead of the gruff old New York steakhouse feeling, it's more the like the usual upscale downtowner.


 

Moran's

103 Washington Street
New York City, NY 10006
212.732.2020
http://moransnyc.com

This classy, traditional Irish bar and restaurant has been delivering the goods since 1897. Basic Irish eats like shepherd's pie with Guinness to wash it down. There's also a good selection of whiskeys and very friendly staff of bartenders and waitresses.
