Edward's stills clings to the old brasserie formula, though it does feel at times like a cafe at a European train station. Mirrored, bottle-lined walls lead up to high ceilings, patrons sip cocktails at a well-stocked wooden bar, and a replica of a Swiss railway clock keeps time. Guests spend a pleasant few hours between connections. At brunch or dinner, groups linger over their meals and add their amiable chatter to the diffuse clatter of plates; at night, downtown Manhattanites relax over a drink or two. As in a train station bistro, diners come from all walks of life, and the menu offers choices guaranteed to please many palates, like juicy, popular burgers and solid pasta and chicken dishes. But you know you're in Tribeca and not in, say, Gare de Lyon, because the waiters are actually friendly.Recommended Dishes
