“Everyone likes anchovies,” Bokovza says of The Harrison’s popular radish-and-bagna-cauda appetizer. “They just don’t think they like anchovies.” The man has a point. Both the radishes and the lamb kefteh, made with delicately spiced meat, make for highly shareable appetizers or addictive bar snacks. The day-boat scallops, topped with lemony buerre blanc, make a regular appearance on many a white-linen covered tables here, as does the grilled octopus. The latter is served with house-made harissa and sweet potato falafel, and is substantial enough to serve as a light main. But then you’d miss the creative entrées, like fresh porgy and mussels simmered in a rich, buttery broth, or the heartbreakingly tender lamb neck osso bucco. Another crowd-pleaser is skillet-roasted chicken, which is elevated by umami-rich anchovies. Good taste, as they say, is timeless.

... on the side
The Harrison typically has two menus on offer: one standard, and one vegetable-centric (though not wholly vegetarian).
The restaurant’s private dining room, located one level below the sunny Tribeca corner space, has an impressive collection of Robert Rauschenberg originals and room for up to 22 hungry art aficionados.
