Contemporary French / American
One part Paris. One Part New York. One of America's Best 100 Wine Restaurants, here in the heart of TriBeCa. Taking its cue from Parisian bars à vins, Racines NY goes a step further in the spirit of a world-class wine restaurant.

Executive Chef Diego Moya's menu 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 our world reknowned Wine List, 2800 bottles deep, which is French-centric but global, curated by Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier, MOF.

Where else in New York can you put yourself in the hands of one of the only woman master sommeliers in the world, who’s an incredibly nice person passionate about her work,to choose your wines by the glass or bottle, and then end the evening with one of her favorite liqueurs...Chartreuse. And the chef’s small and large plate format is excellent. Their cabbage dish is so wonderful you’ll never again think of cabbage as a pedestrian vegetable. Add great service and a beautiful space, and what else could you ask for.

Excellent dinner tonight at Racines. I felt the same way last time I dined at the restaurant, but somehow, I forgot to visit again. Not next time!

As simple as it sounds, the grilled cabbage was AMAZING. Everything else that came out was phenomenal as well.

I’d recommend sitting at the chef’s counter so you can see all the food that’s coming out.

Interesting and short (this is good for me) menu. Good service. Great wine. Perfect noise level - there is a buzz so you feel the excitement in the air, but you can still hear your companions when they talk. Such a warm inviting space!

Great selection of appetizers that are creative and delicious. The sauces are outstanding and everything is fresh. My wife had the trout and I had the duck. Both were very well prepared and we ordered some of the vegetable starters to pair with them. The service is top notch and the bartender is excellent. Highly recommended for special occasions

Racine’s has been our favorite French Tribeca restaurant but Saturday was a disappointment. Perhaps it was us—but I don’t think so.

The toasted chicken is full of flavor, yet delicate. The neets and the tartare were fresh and well prepared. The sommelier is very knowledgeable and recommended the perfect wine. They dis not honor our reservation and had to stand at the entrance for half an hour

The Restaurant strikes all the right chords: it’s never too crowded or noisy, it’s always full of smiling staff, and the food & wine are unlike anything you’ve eaten anywhere else. Delicious, uncomplicated, precise.

The food was great, reasonably priced (for New York). Great menu for me, lots of meat and veg, all the service was very friendly and accommodating with none of that status symbol nonsense that most restaurants in New York have. I definitely plan to visit again.
