If you like your entrees to change with the seasons, then Tribeca has a treat for you. Washington Market Tavern just opened on Monday on Murray Street in the heart of this bustling neighborhood.

The restaurants focus is product sourcing. Its staff wants to be able to deliver fresh, market-driven ingredients in conjunction with top-notch customer service. With a menu evolving with the seasons, there will aways be something new to try at the tavern.

In a neighborhood rich in culture, the tavern offers shareable plates and an extensive artisanal cocktail program that regulars and new visitors alike can enjoy. Also, a great spot to hideaway from the hordes of tourists the city attracts.

Two mosaic murals adorn the main entrance; they were custom-made by LMF Group using renderings by Milanese artist Piero Fornasetti. Executive Chef Aksel Theilkuhl, who is a protégé of Chef Laurent Tourondel, created the menu with updated tavern classics, all which are sourced from small local farms. Avant-garde techniques with the freshest of produce create mouthwatering dishes attractive to a diverse spectrum of people.

A Tribeca local, Eric Schwimmer, is the head of the team behind the tavern. He and his team bring years of restaurant savvy paired with unique insight into Tribeca to the table. Schwimmer and his team wanted to create a restaurant that provided a feeling of familiarity and comfort with delicious cuisine and eye for detail. I think its safe to say, they hit the nail on the head.
