Matt Abramcyk

A.K.A. "The Visionary"

Twenty years ago, New York City Restaurateur Matt Abramcyk set out to turn Tribeca into a small NYC town of sorts — or at least make the guests at his neighborhood clubs, bars, and restaurants feel that way. Neighborhood Projects Restaurant Group sprouted from Abramcyk’s desire to create memorable restaurants and bars with creative, artistic, thoughtful environments for his neighbors.

“We lived in the community, our kids spent their entire childhood in the community, so many of our friends live in the community,” he explains, “so we wanted to build a softer, more nurturing, and inspiring neighborhood.” The group’s newest outposts include French eatery Yves, and underground smokehouse speakeasy Holy Ground.

Together with Smith & Mills, Warren 77, and Tiny’s & the Bar Upstairs, the five operating concepts that comprise Neighborhood Projects Restaurant Group current book of business.
