A Slice of New York on The Coast
There is something just really special about this place, but you cannot quite put your finger on it. Tribeca NYC opened late 2014 on Chevron Island and from what I have read recently, it has impressed both visitors and critics alike.

Most months there seems to be a new place opening, or a fairly new place closing on chevron island - I hope this place manages to break the few month mark and remain open. As being a chevron resident, I very much welcome this kind of stylish establishment.
 

Offering New York inspired food for breakfast lunch and dinner plus coffees and cocktails. It is traditional food but cooked and presented to perfection - often simple dishes are the best way to go. I went on a Saturday mid afternoon for coffees and cakes with mates, and honestly if the presentation and taste of these was an indication of the main menu then I truly cannot wait to head back for lunch or dinner, or both at the same time.
 
For coffees you are looking at just $3-4. For breakfast expect pancakes, eggs and bagels, average around $12. Lunch expect salads, sliders and tacos, average around $12. For dinner expect steaks, burgers, ribs and mac and cheese, average around $15-20. They even have happy hour on Wednesday to Saturday 5:30-8:30pm with beer and wine at just $5. This place gets better and better.

I had Key Lime Pie and my friend had Cheesecake and they were so yummy - rich and creamy with a crunchy base. Oh so bad but oh so good. Presentation was spot on with them both being served with icecream, strawberries and yoghurt and blueberries. The coffees too were not short of some creative flair, with different beautiful designs on all three.
 
I looked through the menu and I was pleasantly surprised by the prices - most dishes were very reasonably priced, the most expensive dish was slow cooked ribs at $31. Perhaps that is why so many people are heading back. See the full menus here

Another reason is the service - of course any new place is (or should be) operating at their best but I felt this had an edge. I believe it is family run business by a lovely lady and her rather dashing sons - which perhaps makes the service a little stand out as being a family venture they care more.

I went with my 13 month old daughter who was not overly cheerful and they were so attentive - helping to put the high chair together and offering some things for her to eat or play with. The lady who served us was really nice and chatty, and one of the sons who bought our cake and coffee was engaging and smiley.
 

It is located on the main retail and restaurant strip of Thomas Drive on Chevron Island - which runs between Surfers Paradise and Bundall. Plus being just a little way from Surfers Paradise, you avoid the large crowds and the high prices.

Opening and dining times are a little complicated, so double check website before you head there. Reservations are recommended for dinner. For breakfast open Monday to Sunday from 7am. Lunch open Tuesday to Saturday 12:15 to 3pm. For dinner open Wednesday to Saturday 6:30-830pm. Other times open for drinks and snacks.
