Life lesson diners - always befriend the executive chef of a restaurant you plan to return to again and again. Even if you don’t plan to stay for the complimentary desserts. Thanks John, for a meal well done.
Tiny’s, is well, tiny! Another Sean Avery success (think: Beatrice Inn and Smith & Mills). Although I hear Avery in his “I have airs about myself” shades is a degenerate in the rink, he does understand and employ the makings and trimmings of a restaurant, possibly even a restaurant empire (down the road). This petite cutie tucked cleverly on the busiest (restaurant) street in Tribeca offers American cuisine in a cool, eccentric, dainty atmosphere where thirty-something yuppies mingle, eat and congregate. The menu is tiny like it’s name. The bar is not. In fact it is fully stocked and the mixologists know how to make your drink stiff and keep their crowd happy and buzzed. Our appetizers – fresh burrata served with a tart fig jam and arugula was delicious and the meat eaters at the table devoured the meatball sliders dripping in a thick red sauce and slabs of mozzarella cheese. As a main, we ladies inhaled a lovely and perfectly cooked plate of scallops served with a just right amount of citrus from the fennel and the grapefruit slices that accompanied it. HeView literally licked up every last morsel of his hanger steak served with roast potatoes and greens.
Aside from our heights (5’9 and counting) for this Shorty of a place - Tiny’s is a great find and a cool addition to the neighborhood. Tiny’s is a definite second visit and another perk is that it is stroller friendly during lunch hours for moms that may be interested. Make a reservation soon before it becomes too busy! 135 West Broadway | between Duane and Thomas (212) 374-1135
