Tribeca is located at the Ocean View Hotel, in the heart of JBR’s The Walk, Dubai. Named after the famed TriBeCa district of New York, it is an acronym for ‘Triangle Below Canal Block Association’. 

Tribeca keeps up with the artsy scene that is so ‘New York’. The décor is loft-style meets warehouse interior with concrete floors, exposed brick walls and steel pipes, quirky urban décor, artifacts, contemporary pop art and chilled out industrial mayhem all that pays tribute to Tribeca’s industrial roots. Graffiti-style walls in the balcony, mismatched chairs, funky lamps hanging from the ceiling, make this a perfect any day joint.

There are a few distinct parts of this restaurant – from comfy battered sofa’s to high bar stools, intimate areas for couples to long dining tables for large groups and a narrow alfresco balcony with foosball table and murals. The fact that it has a platform to showcase local and upcoming talent in both art and music scene is commendable.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and asked for our seating preference. We chose to sit outside in the terrace area, and Darko and the rest of the staff ensured that the door was always closed to drown out the music.

Tribeca is committed to organic produce wherever possible and I loved the simplicity of their menus – paper pinned to a piece of cardboard with a clothes peg. Using recycled building materials wherever possible displays Tribeca’s commitment to global sustainability. 

The bar features all the classic beverages as well as organic wines and signature cocktail options.

We ordered the Jamaican Bolt and  Nutty professor. The Jamaican Bolt was served in a  totem mug topped with a flaming passion fruit. I love theatrics especially with food and this was the highlight of our evening. For those who love cream based drinks, Nutty professor would be a good choice. I shifted to Eminem and loved it.

For starters we ordered the Black cod ceviche, chicken tacos and nachos were recommended.

The Black Cod Ceviche was a surprise in itself. First glance and I thought it would lack the needed taste to satiate my Indian Palate. I took the first bite and it was bland. But for the second one I scooped it up from further within and was in for a surprise of citrusy flavors, ginger, a dash of chilli, avocado and coriander and mint stood out as well. The combination of crispy corn tortillas along with the tangy cod was a winner. It’s a must have.

Chicken tacos was served on a long tray with three portions. The fact that the tacos were wiped off in minutes are proof as to how appetizing they were. The marinated chicken breast, cabbage, pineapple relish and chipotle mayo wrapped in soft tacos were a treat to the stomach. The spices were just perfect, my only complaint is that serving 3 portions would definitely create  a food fight between two people.

Darko recommended that we try the nachos and so we did. I’m so glad that we didn’t miss out on these. Tortilla chips were loaded with angus beef, cheddar cheese, jalapeno, olives, sour cream and guacamole. You should have it before it runs cold. 

For the mains we ordered, Organic Salmon and tenderloin steak.

The Salmon portion is a little too big, so I was upset I couldn’t finish it all. However, I enjoyed the crispy skin and the fact that the salmon was perfectly cooked, it tasted so good with the carrot and thyme puree. Apple and walnut salad on the side was just the perfect addition to complete the dish. Overall, it’s definitely a must try, if you like salmon as I do.

We had the steak with a side of truffle Mac and cheese. The steak was perfectly cooked to medium as requested and was juicy. It was served on a wooden blackened platter (which was a turn off for me), but the steak made up for it.

I was surprised we could still had space for dessert post our massive feast. For dessert we had the deconstructed NY cheese cake and S’mores. 

Deconstructed cheesecake was a treat to the eyes and our palate. Steamed cheese cake was served on black slab with almond crumble and passion fruit puree. It was downright delectable. We devoured it right away.

The S’mores were a bit of too many elements and somehow not all of it went well together. It was served in a skittle with a brownie topped with coconut marshmallow, dulce de leche, caramel chocolate, peanut butter, popcorn crumble, raspberry jam and caprice cookies. For those who love a lot in their dessert, this is a good option.

The vibe of this place, along with the warm friendly staff coupled with live music and amazing food makes this a place to unwind post work. The staff is attentive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

If you are looking for a place to unwind over some good healthy food, fun ambiance and live entertainment, then Tribeca is the place for you.
