Quite Continental Recommends: Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs
24/05/2011 § 1 Comment
Just a short note to notify you of a wonderful little gem that has just opened up in my neighborhood, were you ever in the area (and if you go, I do expect an invite). Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs is a darling pink Tribeca townhouse that is still in previews for dinner, but has been open for lunch for a few weeks yet. Recently, I managed to secure a last-minute reservation and arrived a bit early to enjoy a drink at the bar.
The space is rustic, with its exposed brick, well-worn furnishings and tin ceilings, and is decorated with an arty Americana sensibility. Brought to you by Matt Abramcyk (Beatrice Inn, Smith and Mills) and Sean Avery and Henrik Lundqvist (both of the NY Rangers hockey team and Warren 77), Tiny’s has a comfortable, unpretentious vibe. There are just a small cluster of tables in each of the three dining areas, and a tiny bar is nestled on the second floor. The small, but varied, preview menu offered basic American fare with an emphasis on comfort (for example, the crab dip comes paired with Ritz crackers, sitting on a paper doily). I thoroughly enjoyed the roast chicken, which was served atop warm croutons and alongside a grilled, lightly dressed romaine heart.
If you are looking for a cozy place for a casual dinner or drink or quiet date, I definitely recommend Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs. Just don’t be surprised if you see me there. This just might be my new local.
