These days, it seems like every other restaurant is offering good deals, but if you are looking for a one-of-a kind deal that is too good to pass up, head down to Tribeca. Featuring a menu that includes Western dishes with subtle twists of Asian flavors, TriBeCafe offers a $23 Prix-Fixe dinner that is a steal. Customers get to choose an item from 3 courses (appetizer, pasta, and entree) and it comes with ice cream. Their delicate flavors and presentation, the clean and simple décor, as well as the calming atmosphere is especially popular with the ladies, but caters well to groups and couples, too. Open until 1:30am, their late hours attract many young professionals. Their signature dishes include Mentaiko Spaghetti made with spicy cod roe, Japanese “Hamburg” Steak, beef and pork patty drizzled with mushroom demi-glace sauce, and Green Tea Souffle, a must have. PR, Marketing and Event Coordinator, Ms.Yoko Izu explains, “We aim for the simple, casual foods often found in the late-night Tokyo restaurant and bar scene.” The restaurant has an impressive list of wine, sake and shochu, but taking advantage of the $20 sake sampler might be a smart idea.

4-Course Prix-Fixe DinNer Course

Potato Milanese, Mentaiko Spaghetti, Roasted Chicken (with scallion ginger sauce), and ice cream make up the 4-course dinner here. The dishes combine the complexity of Western cuisine with the subtle flavors of Eastern cuisine, adding a gourmet touch to the comfort foods. Beverage(s) not included.
