The Odeon has been part of the downtown scene for so long that it’s hard to remember Tribeca without it. Diners can’t go wrong with its tried-and-true standards: French onion soup blanketed with bubbling Gruyère, crunchy fried calamari made to be dipped in tartar or spicy chipotle sauce, and steak au poivre with fries. Little ones can go for simpler fare, such as pasta and butter, and still have room for decadent desserts like the custard brioche pudding or apple-walnut tart.

A great spot for brunch in Tribeca. A lovely brasserie feel with a kind of historic NYC vibe about it. The Eggs Benedict is one of the best I've had in the city so far and for lunch the Tuna Burger is pretty delicious too. Also a great place for a bit of shameless celeb-spotting, given it's hot location, last time I was sat on a table with Kathleen Turner. Definitely worth a visit. The waitstaff are also always on great form and genuinely attentive yet not over-the-top distracting.
You can't front on this place for '80s cool. I still think of the Scorsese short that he shot here, from New York Stories, "Life Lessons." You probably won't run into Peter Gabriel yourself, but you will get a decent bar steak and delicious mousse.
