Tribeca

Establishment neighborhood
Dig Inn
350 Hudson St., Tribeca
Dig Inn’s philosophy is “farm to counter,” which means that they serve sustainably sourced, usually local food in a casual setting and in a price range that makes it a reasonable option for everyday lunch. The salads and the market plates are easy to take back to the office (or home for dinner), and the menu changes with the seasons, so you won't ever be bored with the offerings. There are locations in Morningside Heights, Union Square, Tribeca, and in Midtown on 52nd, Madison, and 55th, in Lower Manhattan on Pine, Liberty, and Broad St., in Nomad, and off Madison Square Park.
Blaue Gans
139 Duane St., Tribeca
If you've traveled in Austria and Germany, you know how uniquely delicious (if carb-heavy) the cuisine is—and also how hard it is to find good versions stateside. Blaue Gans' menu goes way beyond the obvious weiner schnitzel and wurst by including a hearty beef goulash, a traditionally made sauerkraut, and spätzle. Meanwhile, the kaiserschmarrn is apple-filled, with perfect batter and plentiful powdered sugar. The entire space can be rented for small gatherings.
The Class
22 Park Place, 3rd Floor, Tribeca
This is one of those fitness situations that evades basic definition: Started by Taryn Toomey, it's a self-titled cathartic experience, where you spend 75 minutes engaging in intense movement to “break open and activate ‘stagnant’ layers in the body.” In short you move, and scream, and shake, and yell as you release emotional energy–and get a pretty incredible workout in the process. It requires an open mind and a willing spirit. Photo Credit: Jaimie Baird
Landmarc
179 W. Broadway, Tribeca
Big, bustling, and long-standing, Landmarc is one of those spots that can appease even the fussiest of palates. Beyond the fact that they're never annoyed by the presence of young ones, they're quick with the crayons and the kid-friendly menu, which includes hits like macaroni and cheese, chicken fingers, and peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. Did we mention they serve cotton candy? Meanwhile, parents will find plenty that appeals, too, as well as a really nice wine list. It's great for groups as the one in the Time Warner Center in particular is huge.
