New York Comes To Edinburgh

Location: TriBeCa Bar & Grill, 88 Brunsfield Place

I love New York, so imagine when I heard a New York eating place was opening in Edinburgh. It’s named after Tribeca an area of New York. I had a look on the TriBeCa website and turned out there’s 3 of them in Glasgow already and first one opened in 2003, yet I’d never heard of it!!

I went with my Dad and he took the car, as its in Bruntsfield. TriBeCa is on the corner on Bruntsfield Place, so it was easy to find. We walked in and the first thing you see is the big yellow New York taxi on the wall. The big wall has a brick wall which give the New York building look with the New York taxi hanging from the wall and the back wall has a wall mural of the Brooklyn bridge. It really gives the vibe you’re in New York City with it located on the corner street with see though glass windows and the big yellow taxi which you can see from outside.

We were given the big round table with the posts round it, so we sat down and looked at the menu. All the meals have something to do with New York.

I ordered the Empire State burger and fries which is:

Double prime beef burger with lettuce, tomato, red onion, American cheese, beacon, dill pickle in a brioche bun and topped with a trio of onion rings

It was so huge, I had to cut it up into quarters to eat it. My Dad said it’s huge because the Empire State Building is tall, but I looked at every other table and all the burgers were huge.

I also ordered the classic American vanilla milkshake, which tasted amazing. It’s a thick ice cream shake with whipped cream and spinkles. It’s expensive at £4.50, but they are big and you won’t get the same milkshake else where.

It’s something Edinburgh needed, a place where you can taste New York. I know a lot people dream of going to New York. The only thing I noticed so many people were getting turned away, as it was full. We got lucky I never think to book places and we got told to come back in 10 mins, so we went for a walk. I think it would be a lot popular if there was a restaurant double the size. If anyone goes you must get a milkshake, they are the best!!
