Tribeca Canvas

313 Church St.
New York, NY 10013


  • Sun-Thu 5pm-11pm, Fri-Sat 5pm-4am
The newest offering from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is an international mash-up of culinary styles in Tribeca, and a wacky descent into lowbrow comfort food for the celebrity chef. Diners can pick their way through a greasy, over-the-top platter of nachos, layered with lumps of fried shrimp and slick with ranch dressing. Other options include bloated, watery gyoza and spongy corn dogs. Even the truly nice staff cannot make up for a syrupy, ill-conceived tiramisu slider, which only magnifies the kitchen’s flaws. It's hard to explain why on any given night, the place is packed with a well-dressed crowd of pre-gamers sipping on vodka cocktails called "Casual Encounters." If you choose to wait for a table (why would you?), be sure to appreciate the strange chandeliers crafted from Indonesian vines and the jet-black toilets, as those are the most exciting of the restaurant’s pale offerings. --Tejal Rao
