Tribeca Grill is a New American restaurant located at 375 Greenwich Street (at Franklin Street) in Tribeca, Manhattan, in New York City, co-owned by Robert De Niro and Drew Nieporent. Celebrity investors include Bill Murray, Sean Penn, Christopher Walken, Ed Harris, and Lou Diamond Phillips, among others. [1][2][3][4] It opened in 1990. The Executive Chef is Brenton Lee. The large mahogany bar in the center of the restaurant is from the former Maxwell's Plum restaurant.


Restaurateur Drew Nieporent had opened a restaurant in Tribeca in 1985 called Montrachet, naming it after the Burgundy wine region. The actor Robert DeNiro, who was a regular customer at Montrachet, is quoted as saying “I always thought of having a restaurant — a place where people could meet and talk. Drew had Montrachet a few blocks away, and I said, well, let me ask Drew if he wants to do it.” [5]


The restaurant was designed by architect Lo-Yi Chan.[6] It is housed in the building that was once the home of Martinson Coffee, and now houses the Tribeca Film Center. It is a central gathering place during the annual Tribeca Film Festival. Large paintings on the wall are original paintings from Robert DeNiro, Sr. [7]A 2000 interior renovation included the addition of large lighting fixtures by the architect David Rockwell.


The à la carte menu at Tribeca Grill changes on a seasonal basis, and on the basis of available ingredients. Some menu items have remained on the menu since the restaurant opened in 1990.
