Best of 2014: And the Winners Are…

The polls are closed, the results have been tabulated—thanks to the 1,124 people who voted—and the rejoicing can begin. The readers’ choices for Best of Tribeca 2014 are below. I included runner(s)-up if the race was close.

*Favorite new restaurant: LITTLE PARK
Runners-up: Tutto Il Giorno, El Vez, Racines NY. *Unfortunately, this category has to have an asterisk, because I managed to forget three notable restaurants that opened in Tribeca in 2014: Washington Market Tavern, Añejo, and Church Street Tavern.
