Daruma-ya: A Japanese soba master prepares the buckwheat noodles, topped off with different types of seafood and vegetables (and served hot or cold), at this TriBeCa izakaya.

Racines NY: Offshoot of a Parisian bistro backed by the owner of Chambers Street Wines, serving a seasonal French menu paired with vino from small labels.

Dylan Prime: This steakhouse staple reopened in December with a renovated space and a brand-new menu. For spring, you'll find new dishes from executive chef Michael Berardino featuring large-format feasts and more.

Los Americanos: Roving chef Ryan Skeen has taken the helm at this Latin American eatery, creating a new menu that draws inspiration from various cuisines.

Beluga Bar by Caviarteria: Located in the former Silver Lining space in the Bogardus Mansion on Murray Street, this caviar-focused newcomer offers a menu of much more affordable dishes, including platters of smoked fish, smoked-salmon crêpes and more. An extensive list of caviar and champagne (with appropriate prices) is also available if you've got deep pockets.

Telepan Local: Greenmarket-driven small plates are the focus at chef Bill Telepan's TriBeCa follow-up to his lauded Upper West Side namesake. Downtown diners will find lower prices on a menu that features playful takes on American comfort foods (e.g. pigs in a blanket) in a wood-paneled room that has a casual, Brooklyn-like vibe.

Paul's Baby Grand: A trendy cocktail spot in the Tribeca Grand Hotel from nightlife expert Paul Sevigny.

American Cut: The Manhattan outpost of the Marc Forgione Atlantic City steakhouse offers up inventive American fare inspired by New York City.

China Blue: This recent addition to the TriBeCa dining scene in the former Capsouto Freres space offers up Shanghai-inspired Chinese cuisine, including soups and dim sum.

Khe-yo: This nine-month-old small-plates Laotian, also owned by chef Marc Forgione,  offers up inventive dishes from chef Soulayphet Schwader.
