From entering through the kitchen at an upscale restaurant in Goodfellas to running an establishment in Casino, Robert De Niro has played characters well-versed in the ways of high-end restaurants. With a much more legal and morally righteous approach than the gangsters he’s portrayed, De Niro has delved into the industry himself.
Keeping things close in his favorite neighborhood—Duane Street’s own Tribeca—De Niro runs some great joints. Because he’s established himself as a true restaurateur, here’s a short list of Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca restaurants.
De Niro and esteemed chef Andrew Carmellini partnered up to open this friendly, warm and delicious restaurant in Tribeca. Serving up family sized portions of progressive Italian fare, Locanda Verde aims to please. The fire-roasted garlic chicken for two will leave you easy and full, while the prosciutto-wrapped trout impresses with sharp flavor combinations.

De Niro’s Tribeca Grill is one of his most coveted and highly regarded establishments. Known around the world as a wine destination, the grill features unmatched collections of various world class varietals. On top of its prestige, the restaurant serves simple, classic recipes with the finest ingredients. The Long Island duck breast, for example, features delicious butternut squash, apple puree, swiss chard and sour cherries.

The brainchild of world-famous Japanese artisan chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Nobu establishments around the world serve up flavorful and creative meals. De Niro partnered with some well-known restaurateurs to open up the New York City edition of Nobu (now situated in the heart of NYC’s Financial District). An elegant and simple interior design featuring birch trees and vibrant yellow lighting truly evokes the pleasantness of Japanese design. Dishes like monkfish pate with caviar, lobster salad with lemon dressing and the famous Nobu sashimi tacos take center stage here.
