Wolfgang took a turn of the century TriBeCa building and designed it to reflect the avant-garde artistry of this famed area of the city while creating visual ties to our Park Avenue location.
With 14′ arched ceilings in custom designed stone mosaics, a private dining room, 1,000 bottle wine room, walnut floors and long mahogany bar; our TriBeCa restaurant is intriguing marriage between the traditional and the contemporary.
While our patron’s eyes are drawn upward to David Inbal’s custom mosaics, metal panels along the mahogany bar, suede wrapped walls and alabaster light fixtures, all combine to create an atmosphere of new age elegance.
TriBeCa: A Short History
The name “TriBeCa” was coined to define the section of Manhattan that falls within the Triangle Bellow Canal Street.
From the early 1800s – 1960, this neighborhood was the hub for Manhattan’s food wholesalers and represents the truest examples of cast iron architecture the country has to offer.
While only remnants of these buildings former functions can be seen in faded signs for eggs, meat, fruits and vegetables; Wolfgang’s location was once the distribution center for spices and coffee…this area is now home to some of the city’s finest restaurants.
Not to mention the TriBeCa film festival-this event has been significantly growing in popularity from one year to the next.
Wolfgang’s is please to be adding our specialty to TriBeCa.
Our new location being on Greenwich Street has its own unique history.
This street was so called because when New York centered on Wall Street and the Battery, Greenwich Street was the “high road” out of town to Greenwich Village.
Wolfgang’s is please to be joining in the renaissance of TriBeCa.
