In the heart of Tribeca lies an 1863 landmark cast iron building surrounded by century old warehouses. This elegant, carefully restored building is City Hall Restaurant. Once home to the Lester Pinkus Show Corporation, the restaurant now exudes a timeless feel harkening to past generations of New Yorkers. City Hall’s design is the result of collaboration between chef/proprietor Henry Meer and architect Larry Bogdanow. Together, they succeeded in uniting tradition with innovation by combining the luxuries of the 21st century while honoring the customs of old New York.
Featured in many architectural magazines and periodicals, City Hall evokes the elegance and grace of days gone by. Soaring 20 foot ceilings, original cast iron columns and earth tone fabrics give City Hall a sense of sophistication and warmth. Surrounded by classic black and white photographs of Manhattan in the early 1900’s, guests become transported to an era of history long forgotten. The tables, carved from solid Danish pear wood are left bare to display the handiwork of local artisans. Gentle lighting flatters every inch of the restaurant.
Located just blocks from City Government, courts, and wall street, city hall restaurant has become the destination of choice for everyone who works, lives, and visits the original heart of New York City.
