Hot Dining: The Gabardine’s Gracious Space

photo by Gizelle Lau

When seeking sustenance in the Financial District, it’s easy to opt for a quick fix in one of the area’s many underground food courts. Topside, however, offers an alternative in The Gabardine, a bright and cheery bistro for those who prefer the family dining room to the boardroom. A tin ceiling, copious amounts of wood, and vintage advertisements on the whitewashed walls add to the homey charm, while congenial servers proffer an all-day menu of “fine grub” that includes sandwiches—grilled cheese with smoked ham plus sweet onion and tomato jam ($14), for example—and entrees such as beet and goat cheese risotto ($16), PEI mussels ($19) and steak frites ($23).
