A neighborhood stalwart, Walker’s is a throwback to the old Tribeca, where artists and families and celebrities and barflies hang out together. The food is straight-up, classic American, which is what anyone would want and expect from such a place—where else are you going to find a chopped sirloin steak? The vibe is friendly and attitude-free. If you’d rather not watch TV, opt for the back room (instead of the front, where the bar is). Note: Walker’s opened a pizzeria-and-more called Girello next door on Varick.
