Tribeca NYC

While striving to stay on top of New York's hottest culinary trends, Tribeca NYC has launched a new dinner menu. But don't despair, their crowd-drawing ribs are still on the menu

Unfortunately, this restaurant has now closed – but you should stick around and check out these other restaurants!


Well known amongst locals, Tribeca NYC prides themselves on having some of the freshest, most authentic and on-trend American dishes on the Gold Coast. More often than not, a Gold Coaster will tell you for the best ribs you’ve got to go to Tribeca on Chevron Island, and that’s not by chance, these boys have done their research!

Brothers Shannon and Brandon Pollard have each had a successful stint in professional sports and therefore spent copious amounts of time in the States. During their athletic careers they fell in love with American cuisine (who wouldn’t?). Since returning to the Gold Coast, the duo along with their mother Carolyn have put their best foot forward in presenting the Coast with some of America’s most loved dishes. They use annual trips as a chance to study everything from culinary style and taste to wait staff attire at New York City’s top restaurants and hidden-gems. As a result, Tribeca’s menu can change in a New York minute. Sahnnon and Brandon have changed the menu 5 times in 16 months to keep their ‘Taste of New York’ up to date!

There is a restaurant in NYC that serves a whopping 38 kinds of Mac ’n’ Cheese and the boys have brought their favourite, Buffalo Crab Mac ’n’ Cheese, back for us to enjoy (yay for research!).
Just because there are simple dishes like Mac ‘n’ Cheese on the menu, don’t be fooled, this ain’t no regular American joint. Its a small venue with a sophisticated fit out. Yes the ribs are finger licking good, but you’ll be eating them with pinkies out.
Some of the other sinful items on the menu include the Ron Jeremy Jr Hot Dog, the Sinatra Supper which is a 1/2 Rack Pork Ribs, Teriaki Chicken Wings, Grilled Prawns and award winning Kinkawooka Black Mussels(yes please!), and of course ribs. With a current emphasis on seafood in NYC, Brandon recommends the prawn fireball and tells us it is his favourite dish. We liked them, but we’ve got to give a shot out to the tacos too.

We aren’t the only ones recognising how fantastic the food at Tribeca is. They are currently finalists in the QLD Taste Awards their grilled prawn salad and for the pepper prawn chicken. However in our opinion, nothing compared to the fall off the bone Harlem Rack Ribs served with a side of potato salad, they were truly one of the best dishes we’ve tried in a while (Fo real!).





Wednesday get a rack of ribs for $22! It’s a steal and everybody knows it, so you’ll have to book in advance if you want to take advantage of this amazing deal. It’s not uncommon for them to be booked three weeks in advance!


Pre-paid coffee cards. For $11 you can get a card that will get you small coffees for $2.75 and for $17 you can get large coffees for $3.75.


Their killer selection of wine is so good they have made award-winning wine writer, Tyson Stelzer’s top places to get wine on the Gold Coast list. Regarding Tribeca NYC’s selection, Tyson has said “You don’t need to go to a five-star venue to get five-star wine.” Other venues on the list include Moo Moo, Palazzo Versace and The Fish House.


Drink specials from 6pm-7:30pm


Coming soon – Little Italy Thursdays featuring authentic Italian/NYC style meatballs.


Almost any dish can be made gluten free. Take that coeliac!

7 American-style eateries on the Gold Coast

Easy Street Diner (image supplied)

Seeing as we’re staring down the barrel of the 4th of July, AND we all have a soft spot (very soft in fact – also known as our love handles) for super-sized greasy American food, it only seemed right to share our American eatery intel.  Devouring burgers, wings, hot dogs, ribs, Ruebens and pretty much anything fried within an inch of its life is a common guilty pleasure, particularly after a night on the sauce, or at the end of a juice diet when you declare “never again”.

Here is a round-up of the Gold Coast’s top spots to get your hands on some American eats and yes, you’ll have fries with that…

Easy Street Diner
Serving up some of the tastiest, juiciest, most authentic American-style nosh you’ll find this side of Texas, Easy Street Diner is a no-brainer for epic USA-inspired cuisine. Winning a tonne of awards over the years, you can devour your dinner in a traditional diner-style booth (did someone say “Happy Days”?) and sample their mighty fine cocktails. How ya’ll like that?!
Our pick: Southern Fried Chicken Burger with fried chicken tenders resting on a bed of house-made coleslaw, smothered in Cajun mayo and served on a toasted milk bun
Where: 2563 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach

Eddies Grub House
It’s the place to go for a finger-lickin’ good all-American nosh up on the far southern Goldie – with a hearty side of blues and rock n’ roll! Eddies Grub House is known for its bigger than Memphis portions, and food just tastes better when there’s live music involved, no?! Side note: the impressive American whiskey collection is all-time and well worth a sip.
Our pick: The Grizzler with two Southern fried chicken tenders, bacon, cheddar, Eddie’s chicken gravy and shallots
Where: 171 Griffith Street, Coolangatta

The Loose Moose (image supplied)

The Loose Moose
Now this is a tad controversial because The Loose Moose is a proudly Canadian-themed joint, but like we embrace our mates over the ditch, we figured it was okay to include this Prohibition Tap & Grill House. They specialise in ‘dirty food made clean’, offer 25 varieties of craft beers on tap and stock 160 whiskeys from all over the globe. Sign us up!
Our pick: Buffalo Wings with Sweet Jesus Sauce (maple and smoky BBQ)
Where: Oasis Shopping Centre, Broadbeach

Luckie’s Diner – The Collective
It’s always cheat day at Luckie’s Diner, one of The Collective’s fave eats offerings! Their American-style menu with an edge never disappoints, and you can’t go wrong with the ambience at this Traveller’s Choice award-winning collection of five restaurants under one roof. Oh and PS – the cocktail list is equally swoony. Bonus!
Our pick: Truffled Royal with Cheese Burger, featuring beef, cheese, black truffle mayo, special sauce, lettuce, tomato and pickles
Where: The Collective 1128 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach

House of Brews (image supplied)

House of Brews
With a name like this, you know you’re going to get a whole lotta beer with your burger – 32 craft varieties on tap in fact. But it’s not all about the amber ales, because the live music and innovative food offerings, including plenty of American-inspired foodery action, are a #vibe. The perfect place to start a night out on the glitter strip.
Our pick: Tasting Board ‘A La Lazy Susan. One for sharing, it includes nachos, halloumi fries, salt and pepper squid, pulled beef sliders, and Buffalo wings served with chipotle mayo and aioli.
Where: 17 Orchid Ave, Surfers Paradise

Looking for a place where it’s always Friday and if this isn’t a rhetorical question…?! Add your favorite American dishes right off the grill, plenty of beer on tap and drinks that are always a’flowin and you’ve just described TGI FRIDAYS! With over 931 restaurants in 60+ countries, you know it’s a guaranteed an All-American home run, seven days (and nights…) a week!

Ze Pickle
Opening in 2012 and decorated with cool American number plates, this rustic-chic restaurant and bar quickly became famous for its quirky menu loaded with interesting takes on dishes hailing primarily from the US of A. Respect! With an army of devoted followers (us included), it’s a must when you’re craving a burger, wings, chips, shrimp…and a mighty fine craft beer or cocktail.
Our pick: Baja Fish Taco Burger with beer-battered whiting, pineapple coriander salsa, Baja sauce slaw and crunchy tortilla chip

3 reasons to re-visit Ribs and Rumps

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of a new restaurant opening on the Coast every five minutes, we get it. However it’s important to remember there are MANY places that have been around a little while now worth a (re)visit. One such place is Ribs and Rumps, located on the waters edge at Marina Mirage.

In the spirit of appreciating ALL the delicious foods on offer around the Coast, we’ve collated the three top reasons to visit Ribs and Rumps.

All of the meats:
As you might expect, Ribs and Rumps specialise in all things meaty. Recently the menu has been updated to include some tasty new treats and of course, all the old favourites. If ribs (and lots of them) are your thing, opt for Ribs, Ribs & Ribs – it’s 1kg of their famous combo, pork, beef and lamb ribs, served with coleslaw and fries, mash or herb and garlic potatoes.

Cocktail jugs:
That’s right friends, never again do you need to choose a measly single serve cocktail. Ribs and Rumps have just introduced said jugs of cocktails and, as you might imagine, they are going gangbusters amongst those who don’t mind a refreshingly delicious beverage (or three). Nothing in the world sounds better than an entire jug filled with Sour Watermelon Mojito right? Right.

The view:
There are very few places on the Coast where you can eat and drink while gazing longingly at giant yachts you’ll never be able to afford. Happily, at Ribs and Rumps, you can do exactly that. The venue overlooks the marina and is usually jam packed with spectacularly shiny vessels bobbing away in the sunshine. If not, you can always just watch over the sparkly water and that’s not so bad either is it.

Sounds like it’s about time for a trip to Marina Mirage doesn’t it gang? See you there for a sunset session.

LOCATION: Marina Mirage, Seaworld Drive, Main Beach
HOURS: 11.30am to 10pm daily.
