We Found The Best Place To Dine In The Financial District
The financial district has to be one of the city’s most attractive neighborhoods. With outstanding architecture, an influx of culture, nightlife and restaurant scene has many outside of the financial world flocking downtown. Not to mention, it has the highest concentration of subway lines for all five boroughs making it convenient. Nestled in Hanover Square in the building that was the former home to the New York Cotton Exchange, is Joseph’s, an Italian restaurant that is family run. The 140-seat establishment recently went through a redesign fusing contemporary art and design and adding a spin on traditional dishes.
The seasonal menu, which highlights Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, draws power players for lunch and a well-heeled crowd for cocktails and dinner. Start with Mussels, seasoned with chorizo and chives and the gulf shrimp marinated with endive and jalapeno, drizzled with blood orange citronette.
Next, try the signature dish, Lobster Pyramids- you won’t be disappointed. A handsomely designed ravioli served with oven dried tomatoes and lobster butter sauce. For the Entrée, order the Branzino or Halibut, adorned with squash, caponata, and black olive tapenade.
Classic Italian desserts also have been modified to incorporate rum-infused Tiramisu and Nutella Cannolis. Come for the drinks, stay for dinner. The bar highlights a delectable fare to nosh as well including meatball sliders and Parmigiano and crispy lobster pyramids with spicy mayo.
