Walker's A neighborhood stalwart that offers authentic New York charm (the brusque service is ignored in favor of the juicy burgers and cheap, cold beer), the only thing pretentious about this Tribeca tavern is its chichi address. The menu features standard-but-tasty pub grub -- order the smoky "cowboy chili", topped with a plump dime of sour cream or the crisp pan-roasted chicken resting lazily atop buttery mashed potatoes -- that serves as a solid foundation for lots and lots of booze. The brave and the drunk would be wise to chat up any available old-school patrons willing to trade stories about the N.Y.C. landmark. 16 N. Moore St. New York, NY 10013 212-941-0142

Landmarc If there is such a thing as a truly chic steakhouse (as well as one that doesn't sneer at non-meat eaters) then this is it. The menu is an enormous hodgepodge of French bistro staples and Italian trattoria standards -- you may order the thick tubes of bucatini all'amatriciana while your dinnermate has the boeuf Bourguignon
 -- but the combination works like a blended romance language (think: same roots, different techniques). If you find yourself on an extended Jury Duty lunch break, spend it devouring the finger-staining croque monsieur topped with a fried egg and oozing with gruyere. 179 W. Broadway New York, NY 10013 212-343-3883.

Marc Forgione Is Marc Forgione himself rustic, romantic, and inviting? His namesake restaurant certainly exudes those qualities. This cozy brick-walled space tends to attract couples who seem to be on the brink of proposals. But the effect is not based on dim lighting alone. Chef and owner Forgione combines influences of rustic Italian cooking with bits of French technique and slightly Southeast Asian flavors. Order the cooked-under-a-brick chicken, a bird so juicy and sweet that you'll be forgiven for gnawing on the leftover bones. The pumpkin soufflé -- peeking out from atop a ramekin -- and gingersnap cookies are also worth sampling before the evening is over. 134 Reade St. New York, NY 10013 212-941-9401.

No Bouley? No Brushstroke? David Bouley was pioneering the TriBeCa scene long before any of the aforementioned chefs AND DE NIRO! What gives?

you snubbed Sushi Azabu for Takahachi?  Nope.  Can't accept that.
