Noted Tribeca is the latest all-day restaurant to hit Manhattan, with a modern Korean menu from Masa and ABC Kitchen alum Steve Song. It comes from couple Minho Yang and Seong Choi, who will start curating rotating art exhibits at the restaurant this fall.
Located at 112 Hudson St., between Franklin and North Moore streets, Noted Tribeca acts as a cafe and coffee lounge during the day, serving various toasts. They come sweet and savory, including one with banana, almond butter, chia, and pumpkin seeds; and one with crabmeat, lemon aioli, and dill. Of course, there’s avocado toast too, as well as a toast topped with Korean purple sweet potatoes.
Weekend brunch plays with sweet and savory as well, particularly with waffles. The sweet waffle comes topped with bananas, pecan, and strawberry lemongrass jam from Brooklyn-based jam and marmalade brand Brins, and the savory one has slow-cooked pork belly, squash puree, and maple syrup.
At night, Noted Tribeca serves dishes like rice balls, sea bass with squash, a hamachi crudo, and pasta with cod roe and nori. Ryan Clur — who used to craft espresso cocktails at Maialino — helmed the drink menu, which includes seasonally changing cocktails given edition numbers rather than fixed names so they can change. “Ed. 003” is currently a rum-based cocktail with lemon, amaro, and cappelletti, while “ed. 004” blends soju, vermouth, cocci americano, and bitters. “Ed. 007” is intentionally unlisted on the menu, as it’s the “secret” cocktail, a bartender’s choice that will change night-to-night. See the full food and drink menu below.
Mismatched furniture, including relaxed leather couches and exposed brick, lend a casual look to the space, which has 35 seats. There are long wooden communal tables, smaller round tables and, as with most new neighborhood restaurants to open recently, lots of plants. Starting in September 2018, there will be rotating art exhibitions in the restaurant curated by Choi, who has a background in art consulting. Exhibits will showcase one artist at a time and run for one to two months.
Noted Tribeca joins Soogil and Oiji in the modern Korean neighborhood restaurant scene in Manhattan. It’s open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
