Tribeca Specialty

Specialty neighborhood
Laughing Man
184 Duane St., Tribeca
Years ago, Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborah-Lee Furness traveled to Ethiopia during a World Vision trip and he happened to meet a coffee farmer named Dukale, who was growing incredible beans in an effort to support his struggling family. In 2011, Jackman started the Laughing Man Foundation, to help farmers in developing countries find a market for their beans in America, which you can sample at his Tribeca coffee shop. Not only do 100% of the profits support the foundation, but they make an excellent Flat White, too.
Magic Mix Juicery
102 Fulton St., Financial District
This small vegan café/juicery in the Financial District is one of the only places in the area where you can find 100% organic, raw, cold-pressed juice—all made fresh in-house daily. We like the Fearless Cleanse, a line-up of six juices. Though they all have a green component, they're varied enough to make it interesting: In addition to the standard kale/spinach mixes, there's one with wheatgrass and one with E3Live. Even on the first day, we were feeling the effects of the detox, most notably in a runny nose and an energetic euphoria around 3pm.
New York Vintners
21 Warren St., Tribeca
The brains behind this wine lover's paradise, Robert Allen and Derrick Mize, worked at Italian Wine Merchants under Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich before establishing this one-stop shop for all things vino. Their Tribeca shop is a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the storefront, which shows off their collection of temperature-controlled, mostly European wines. Here they host wine tastings and classes where you can learn about food pairings (they’ll even teach you what makes biodynamic, organic, and sustainable winemaking practices superior). Their workshops and lessons are all-inclusive, so you don’t need to bring anything but an open mind.
