The Financial District might seem all business, but even professionals need a great place to eat. Don’t fret, this list isn’t full of highbrow dining halls for business meetings. The ‘FiDi’ has a diverse selection of food haunts. From the bustling Stone Street area to the New York Stock Exchange, here are 10 great restaurants tucked between the skyscrapers.
Seafood lovers flock to Luke’s Lobster. The location of this well-known lobster roll provider fits in with the riverside area of the Financial District. The owner, Luke Holden, is originally from Maine and wanted to provide a high quality, affordable lobster roll for New Yorkers. The business began in the East Village, but quickly grew, and now you can get a fresh lobster roll in the FiDi. Luke’s sources their lobster exclusively from Maine, so you get the authentic taste without having to travel very far. Grab a lobster roll and head down to the riverside promenade for a marine-themed afternoon.
