Few businesspeople can get away with three-martini lunches these days. The machismo of high-end red-meat consumption and glittery seafood gluttony, however, are still culturally acceptable. Tribeca’s City Hall provides the perfect stage for that kind of corporate fantasy. The walls’ black-and-white photos portray turn-of-the-century Manhattan street scenes, but the room’s pristine checkerboard floors, lofty ceilings, and clustered round booths evoke a more glamorous, cleaned-up New York romance. Briny bivalves, giant shrimp, and chilled lobster can be ordered á la carte or riding atop “high rise seafood towers” with tartar sauce and horseradish-spiked cocktail sauce. You can choose from five different cuts of dry-aged corn-fed Nebraska beef, including a thick-cut prime rib for two or a pillowy filet mignon. Just stick to the great surf and turf steakhouse classics, and expect to pay Wall Street prices.

Private Dining

City Hall has two private dining rooms: the Rose Room seats 32, and the Granite Room seats up to 110.

City Hall does not deliver raw shellfish.

Between the Rose and Granite Rooms, City Hall Restaurant can accommodate anywhere from 32 to 220 guests. The Granite Room’s dark-walnut-and-brick bar and granite ceilings create a vibe of stately elegance (from $3,500); the Rose Room’s warmly colored walls offer a romantic and intimate atmosphere (from $2,000).

Recommended Dishes

"Chrysler high-rise" of shellfish, $69; 21-day dry-aged steak, $45; curried onion rings, $12
