ONE PART PARIS. ONE PART NEW YORK.
Racines NY took root in the heart of TriBeCa in the Spring of 2014. Though taking its cue from Parisian bars à vins, Racines NY goes a step further in the spirit of a fully-fledged wine bistro.
The menu, under the culinary direction of Executive Chef Diego Moya, can neither be described as particularly French, nor particularly American. Here there is a strong focus on being vegetable forward, and working with local and sustainable farms, ranches, and fisheries. Featuring about a dozen small plates, a handful of entrées for one and a couple for two, Racines NY offers a flexible dining experience. Guests are strongly encouraged to order “pour la table,” but more than welcome to order individually à la carte.
Organic, biodynamic, natural vinifications, and small estates. These are the hallmarks of the Wine List, 2800 bottles deep, which is French-centric but global, curated by Arnaud Tronche and Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier. Over 20 selections by-the-glass doesn’t hurt either.
Racines NY offers an intimate dining experience seating a maximum of just 50 guests at a time for table service, 4 exclusive seats at the Chef’s Counter, and 14-seat marble Bar where the full menu is also available. The restaurant is located steps from City Hall Park, and a short walk from The Oculus at The World Trade Center. Racines NY is also proud to host the artwork of Xavier Prou, better known as Blek le Rat, one of the first graffiti artists in Paris.
