Square Diner
33 Leonard St.
(at Varick)
American (Traditional)

A throwback to an earlier Tribeca, the Square Diner—which is a triangle—has been a Tribeca institution for longer than anyone can remember. It has an undeniable retro charm, although many people really like it mostly for what it isn’t (i.e., fussy and expensive). The menu is what you would expect, with an growing emphasis on fresh ingredients. And the ATM outside is there for people who didn’t realize that the diner doesn’t take credit cards.
