A word from Kutsher's Tribeca
Kutsher's Tribeca is a uniquely modern Jewish-American bistro open 7 days a week with lunch, brunch and dinner. Kutsher's will give New Yorkers their very first chance to experience updated "Catskills cuisine" inspired by the iconic Kutsher's Country Club founded in 1907. With a new take on timeless classics, the restaurant will bring the spirit of the Catskills to Tribeca, creating a brand new dining experience never before seen in New York City. The menu, created by NY Times 2-star chef, Mark Spangenthal, takes a contemporary and playful approach to the canon of Jewish cooking from small bites to more substantial offerings.



The 140 seat restaurant designed by architect Rafael de Cardenas presents a fresh take on the 1960's canteen, featuring a comfortable downtown aesthetic that channels the communal and family-friendly spirit of Kutsher's historic dining room.

Diner Reviews
  • "the restaurant has great nostalgic cultural food but for some reason the place was empty on a thursday night last week. they also had a weird issue with many of standard alcohols missing. like no vodka and running out of certain mixes for what is otherwise a graet cocktail menu. something sketchy with the bar not getting delivery and/or being emptied out by a party the night before. Manager was cool and comped 50% off alcohol. If they fix those issues look forward to coming back as food is really great!"

  • "We had a groupon, that's the actual reason we went there. We didn't realize we purchased a dinner groupon, so we went for brunch (the dinner groupon that we purchased was actually $20 more expensive than the brunch groupon). They didn't tell us until it was too late that they would have to charge us for soup and drinks that were not included in the brunch groupon, even though we had already paid extra. The restaurant manager was very rude, would not work with us at all. She had actually hand written prices on our check which seemed to be a great deal more than they should have been. So even though the food was wonderful, our experience left us angry and disappointed. We will not be going back there."

  • "Been meaning to check out Kutsher's for a while now, & Restaurant Week gave me the kick I needed! The location is great and spacious with a wonderful nostalgic vibe. The menu has recognizable NY dishes with some modern twists. We LOVED the mini knishes & "borscht" gazpacho, but were less impressed with our main dishes. The challah grilled cheese with veal bacon was as decadent as you'd imagine, so I'd suggest sharing with a friend. The KT pastrami, however, was a bit of a letdown. The bread was great & flavors spot-on, but the meat was grey (overcooked). For dessert they won me back with their fantastic cheesecake! Given the other temptations, like the duck schmaltz fries, the terrific service & general ambience. I'll be back for sure!"

  • "I had eaten here before and the meats and smoked salmon was really good. At this particular visit the meat was dry. A little disappointing but rated it very good because it was amazing during my last visit."

  • "Have not dined there for brunch in several months and surprised to see it how far it has fallen. What a shame- it had been quite a good brunch place."

  • "I really enjoyed Kutsher's cuisine and would definitely come back again. We were welcomed by a nice smiling lady and swiftly seated not far from a (maybe a bit too) noisy bar. The service was a bit slow, but the food was worth the waiting: the appetizers were good (even if small) but the main courses were delicious. We had a great Israeli cous cous and lamb brisket, a nice and delicate grilled salmon, an excellent Romanian steak and a very interesting selection of sliced meat, with bread sauces, liver, called Delicatessen. If you prefer not to (or cannot) drink beer or wine, I would recommend their home-made soft drinks, the ginger-ale above all."

  • "We went during happy hour and got latkes, knishes, chicken fingers, pastrami, corned beef, all these things. And the matzoh ball soup was great. You have to go there."

  • "We thought the food was very good as was the service. Everything was fresh and tasty. The space leaves a lot to be desired. It seems that little thought went into arranging tables, which were too close together. The design also leads to it being unnecessarily loud."

  • "This place takes traditional Jewish food and makes it truly exceptional. Wonderful cocktails and brunch menu with delicious innovative foods such as pastrami cured smoked salmon are to die for. I highly recommend!"

  • "Kutsher's was a disappointment. The salmon we ordered was grossly overcooked. I tried to find our waiter to send it back, but he was no where to be found. After flagging a different waiter, I got a look of disbelief when I sent the salmon back. After some time had passed, I was about to give up on the salmon and cancel it. When I finally found our waiter, He begged me to keep the salmon as it was just put on the flame. This time the salmon was cooked more towards med rare; although, the ends were dry and overcooked again-- perhaps the chef needs to get some lessons on cooking fish. Again, no apology from the waiter or manager. We were not comped a drink or dessert for the inconvenience, which is kind of standard. Will not be back."

  • "Service was poor - Food was worse! French fries were good but my corned beef sandwich was not worth eating! Definitely not a deli ( which is what we expected )"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The food was fine and the service good but it seemed like Kutsher's Tribeca was going the way of Kutsher's Catskills. The main dining room was curtained off and diners were seated in the bar area. We ate at rather small, pseudo marble tables. When there were patrons at the bar, the area was very noisy. I found the atmosphere somewhat depressing. It was a Friday night, and when we left, around 8:30PM, there still were many empty tables. "

  • "It is an old restaurant, the atmosphere is decadent, we were not notified that the kitchen was about to close so we could not hace dessert. Did not like it at all."

  • "After having read about the restaurant when it opened, I expected a different environment...although I can't exactly describe what that is. The restaurant on the weekday at 1 PM was essentially empty and half the room closed off. The service was just ok because the waiter spent a lot of time behind the room divider (where the remaining staff was either meeting or having their lunch). Construction in the area may hinder attendance but I think that Kutsher's is not really a destination restaurant in the long run."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "We went to Kutsher's at 8:30 on a Saturday night. There was literally no one else eating there. By the time we left an hour and a half later, only two other tables had been filled. When I placed my order our waiter said, "Oh, we're out of that. Sorry, I forgot to tell you." When we ordered dessert he tossed the menus down and said, "There's no ice cream tonight. Sorry." On the bright side, the food we did get was quite good, as were our drinks. The idea of updating an old Catskills resort is really fun, too. (We used to go to the Concord, near Kutsher's every winter.) But no one really seemed to be running the place, and perhaps that's why it was so empty when every restaurant around it was packed."

  • "After reading some fairly average reviews our expectations were not high before arriving. Whilst the food and service and ambiance were ok, our dinner including compulsory gratuity was grossly overpriced for the quality and quantity of what we ate and drank "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Okay, They are trying. The eggcreams are amazing. the chopped liver is excellent. The lamb brisket so so. The prices are pricey and the service is appalling. How appalling? Well, at $125 a person for a holiday dinner, the waiters dropped soiled silverware on the bare table top in between courses that had schmaltz, liver, brisket etc. on them, and then on the table. They left dirty plates. And could not be flagged down for a glass of water. Those downsides were formidable. On the upside. A wonderful idea. Food that while spotty is on the way to wonderful. And owners who are clearly passionate about their business and caring -- when they are involved -- about their customers. R"

  • "Had been there for dinner several times so we were expecting a warm atmosphere and an elegant holiday dinner for what turned out to be our over $100 per head including taxes and tips, excluding their overpriced wine and drinks. Instead they had turned up the lights and hung sports banners from the old hotel, so you felt like the inside of a gym. The food was mediocre and the service was haphazard. Chicken and duck liver needed seasoning. Artichokes were ok. Latkes were bland. Trout was good but barely warm and very small portions. Folks who had the lamb brisket thought it was great. They didn't bring enough dessert for the table until we asked. Could have been great but instead a huge disappointment. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Eaten here before for a Seder - don't recall skimpy dishes. One tiny portion of chopped liver on table for 4 (very) hungry diners. Not much value for $85 a person."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Very disappointed We went for a family seder and sad to say it was a horrible overpriced experience . Bad overpriced food and drinks, Cocktails were $13 for warm uninspired cocktails. Thimble sized chopped liver had to be shared with no seconds!! Chicken soup was okay and so was the small desserts that also had to be shared the coffee was lukewarm and we were forced to give a 20% tip which was added on to our charge card. We were never informed of this 20% charge on the phone or was it printed anywhere. Comments of other patrons upon leaving were also very negative. Although the service was fair at best, the small portions and lackluster taste of the food and the high prices made this a one time visit for me and my family."

    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Despite some on line poor reviews, we found good service and delicious traditional food. The matzoh ball soup was home made as was the real ginger ale (and other house sodas). The pastrami and corned beef melted in the mouth. Although is is expensive for such a meal of soup and sandwich, we enjoyed every bite."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The food was wonderful, albeit heavy. The special cocktails are cute. The artichoke appetizer and the latkes with topping are wonderful. Many items, including the interesting entrees, have dropped off the menu. What we now have is mostly wonderful high end delicatessen at a high end price. Still, I loved the lamb brisket and the brussels sprouts. Dessert wasn't worth it."

  • "Kutsher's is a great spin on a traditional Jewish deli. The combination of Asian cuisine and Jewish cuisine together are fantastic flavors that explode in your mouth. Outstanding potato latkes with duck confit."

  • "Very fun - a nice change of cuisine. Roast chicken was overcooked & dry; cel-ray soda was homemade & you could definitely tell. It was a delicious soda. Desserts were excellent, especially recommend the sundae. We found the ambiance to be a little too simple; could have used a bit more feeling of nostalgia."

  • "Nice place. Went for a lovely and very unique NY brunch. NYC's unique Jewish heritage infused with a modern fusion twist. Some of the stuff was good, some excellent. The pastrami spring rolls were fun but while exciting, I did not find the final result outstanding. Beetroot salad was very well crafted. We tried two types of latkes: traditional with apple compote and sour cream, and with home made gently smoked brisket and horseradish sauce. Both were excellent. The latkes tasted like 'real' latkes but the twists were also fun. Excellent home made sodas (loved the cele-ray) cool desserts including a lovely apple pie ice cream soda. A very worthwhile concept, good execution, and very reasonable prices. Excellent service too."

  • "Having spent my summers at Kutcher's in the Catskills, i thought this would be a fun place have dinner with friends. I was disappointed. The portions were a bit small. The pastrami was fatty. Although the service was good, the small portions and lackluster taste of the food made this a one time visit for me."

  • "Was surprised, the place was pretty empty. I have read about the restaurant and the chef when it was opening. Familiar with the resort...(not my thing, however, deserves historical recognition...) I think, the food was really good. Even though, I am not into "deli" type of food, but, it was an artisanal version of Jewish/Yiddish/American food... I think, it deserves more attention that it was getting."

  • "I recognized the name Kutsher's from the resort in the Catskills that I went to one summer with my family as a kid, so I was curious to check out this restaurant. What a treat. The food on their menu is nostalgic but every dish has a unique twist that makes it really special. The cocktail menu is great, the duck latkes are incredible, the mini potato knishes melt in your mouth. I've never tasted anything like their shlishkes. I will be back."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "They make their own pastrami and corned beef! And they are very good. Very few restaurants in NYC brine their own. It's an attention to detail that shows the restaurant's love of good basic food. This is not haute cuisine but real, Catskills style food. (Not kosher)"

  • "Brisket and latkes and artichokes - well, anything on the menu - always comes out very well. Really like the place! Definitely a neighborhood gem! And their wine selection is limited but always very solid. I've discovered new wines at Kutsher's a few times, where I've left and purchased a case for my own consumption. Oh, and while I did not order it this time, the gefilte fish is the best EVER."

  • "Visiting this restaurant brought me back to the days when my parents and I went to this hotel in the Catskills. Those were the days. It's wonderful to have this restaurant in the city and to eat and remember those times. Food was delicious. We were 6 people and ordered a little of everything so we could all taste. Prices are on the high side but I didn't mind paying except for 1 thing. The big megillah soup should have more than 1 kreplach for the $19.00 price."
