Pisillo is one of the hands-down best Italian sandwich shops in Manhattan, and we endorse making your way over here if you’re anywhere in the vicinity. The Italian news blasting on the TV is a good sign of authenticity, and it’s statistically proven that watching Silvio Berlusconi’s face flash across a screen makes your prosciutto and mozzarella better. The sandwiches are simple, but made with extremely high-quality ingredients. They’re also huge.

Beaubourg, the restaurant at Brookfield Place inside the French marketplace Le District, is easily forgettable and should generally be avoided.
Once you get past the prices, the burgers at Zaitzeff are pretty damn enjoyable. While it's not our favorite spot, you could certainly do worse for yourself in the Financial District.
Fika Espresso Bar
The Pearl Street location of Fika is one of the best spots to have a coffee meeting in the Financial District.
