The original Tribeca unit at Partick is renowned for NYC-inspired brunch and dinner dishes that are big on flavour and bigger on portion size.
When it comes to sourcing the best value-for-money breakfast in town, it is hard to look past the three Tribeca outlets dotted across the city. The original restaurant at Partick is the best known of the three for providing ample, American-style breakfast portions to the hordes of customers who often have to wait to be seated. Portions are large, as expected, yet this does not distract from the quality. The signature stack of buttermilk pancakes is thick, fluffy and doused in maple syrup. For those who prefer to start their day without a sugar overload, a variety of five-egg omelettes ensure that making a lunch reservation later in the day won't be necessary. Pick of the other menu options is possibly The Williamsburg – thin slices of smoked salmon partnered with scrambled eggs and a scattering of leaves. While there is little subtlety in most of their dishes, Tribeca very successfully fulfils the role of the American diner, much to the delight of those who like to kick start their morning with all things US of A.
