Of the three excellent restaurants opened by Jimmy Bradley (the others being the Mermaid Inn, which is now held by Danny Abrams, and The Red Cat), The Harrison continues to shine brightest. It is one of the most dependably solid restaurants in the city and rewards repeat dining. Its tavern chic design is echoed in the comfortable, American bistro-style food served with warm hospitality. Combined with its location in far west TriBeCa, you can even feel like you’re not in the city anymore.
The food is simple and seasonal. Although it is thoroughly American, it bears the imprint of the Mediterranean. Char grilled octopus fingerlings with feta and fresh mint are refreshing and delicious. An English-cut lamb chop with rosemary or a skillet roasted chicken with lemon and garlic and a side of duckfat fries and mayo make an exquisite meal. The restaurant’s reliability extends to the service and wine list selections. Although it is unquestionably one of the best restaurants in New York, it is among an even smaller set of our very favorite restaurants as well.
