Eating Around The Neighborhood: NYC

Working in culinary PR means that sometimes, there is such a thing as a free lunch. But good news is, that doesn’t stop the RHC team from enjoying the scene while off the clock.

We chatted to the RHC team about where they’ve dined and drank in TriBeCa in February for our rundown of answers to the age old question, what are you having for lunch…


First, a team outing to recent media darling (just ask The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal), Revelie Luncheonette. The team traveled just north of the RHC office for a breakfast of Pain Perdue, Eggs Meurette, Irish Oatmeal, Avocado Toast, plenty of sides, and all the coffee you could ask for on a Monday morning.

Created by the team at New York staple Raoul’s, Revelie draws inspiration from the luncheonettes and soda fountains that charmed SoHo throughout the 1920s and beyond, giving patrons an elevated-yet-casual diner experience that’s full of heart, and flavor. Don’t miss the already famous Patty Melt if you stop by for lunch or dinner.

Port Sa’id

Part listening bar, part restaurant, Port Sa’id masterfully blends two of the things New York City is most known for. With an ever-changing, produce-driven menu, Chef Eyal Shani treats guests to unforgettable Mediterranean dishes inspired by his upbringing in Jerusalem.

Digital Account Coordinator Jess Lieberman couldn’t get enough of the Juicy Lamb Kebab (pictured), White Grouper, and Burning Potato. Grab your biggest music and foodie friends for a dining experience unlike any other.

Lavaux Wine Bar

When you think wine, you think France, California, Italy, Spain… but not often Switzerland. It’s time to change that. Lavaux pours the best the country has to offer, perfectly paired with charcuterie boards and central European entrees inspired by the unique blend of neighboring cultures that come together in Switzerland. Don’t take our word for it, Junior Publicist Lauren Boos can attest from her recent visit.


A quick trip up to the Meatpacking District shouldn’t be complete without a stop at Mēdüzā Mediterrania, as Junior Publicist Tanya Khorti learned. Dedicated to inventive flavors and pushing the boundaries of traditional Mediterranean fare, Mēdüzā prides itself on classic dishes with an unexpected twist. 

The drink program is equally as impressive, and the menu mirrors the format of the dinner menu to take the guess out of pairing (the “Meet Me in Mykonos” will immediately transport you to warm days by the ocean).

St. Theo’s

No stroll through the West Village is complete without a stop at Saint Theo’s for Italian staple dishes in an upbeat atmosphere. They might be known for their pastas and proteins, but Publicist Avery Gavornik says you can’t skip their hearty salads like the Arugula and Caesar and their shareables like the Beef Carpaccio and Instagram-worthy Mozzarella in Carrozza (aka the cheese pull that dreams are made of).

Lucia Pizza

We’d be remiss not to mention the newly opened SoHo location of Lucia Pizza, joining the brand’s original location in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, first opened in 2022. Already a lunch favorite among the RHC New York office, Lucia Pizza serves up classic slices done exceptionally well, each topped with a few basil leaves and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese directly after leaving the oven.

Dine in at the counter with views of Canal Street, or bring your slice(s) on a quick walk over to Pier 26 for views of the river.
