Tribeca’s Italian Fare Hopes to Defy Cursed Olmos Park Location

The popular crispy lemon butter calamari


McKinney is taking chances when it comes to the dinner entrees and I hope they start paying off soon. The grilled hangar steak with roasted oyster mushrooms, cornmeal-crusted zucchini fries, and swirl of wild arugula chimichurri had its hits and misses. The chimichurri stole the show, but didn’t make up for poorly seasoned fries — a sprinkle of kosher or sea salt might have done the trick. The mushrooms added another level of meatiness to the dish, but it wasn’t necessarily called for, there was, after all, a perfectly cooked slab of meat under them. In any case, the dish paired well with the house red, an Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The sweet tooth-afflicted can rejoice at the classic tiramisu, and while the dreamy Poteet-strawberry and ricotta-filled cannoli are to be tried, be prepared for a bizarre presentation.

While Tribeca and co. have a few apron wrinkles to iron out, this might be the best shot the location has to stay operational as a restaurant. If Poujol’s vision for a family-friendly place with a beefed-up happy hour (look for that in August) comes to fruition, Tribeca di Olmos could be the casually elegant dining experience Olmos Park needs.
