As its name (“three sisters”) indicates, Tre Sorelle is a family affair. Sisters Antonia Pati, Marie Liotto, and Fran Cotona had two main goals: One was an Italian restaurant where the chefs are actually Italian (as are the owners, who were born in Calabria), and the second was to make a neighborhood restaurant. The affordable menu skews toward the classics, with a wide range of sandwiches for the many folks who work on the other side of Broadway. They converted a nondescript, bordering-on-scuzzy Chinese restaurant into something entirely new, with a 16-foot-high ceiling, a massive brick wall, handsome north-facing windows, and seating for 63 people. In the middle of the room is a wood-fired pizza oven, surrounded by counters and bar seating. Note: The name has been Franco-Americanized into tray sohr-ell. It’s now in the Tribeca pronunciation guide.
