Went for a hamburger with the boyfriend and got shoved in the corner table between 2 different large families. I can see how Edward's has coolness (the front bar scene was hot!), but the rear dining area was packed with pretentious and snobby tribeca parents and their bratty young kids. We prayed that the food would come fast so we could get out of there but, alas, the service was dreadfully slow. We drowned our pain in house red wine which was good. Despite the noise and claustrophobia, the food was actually very good. I'll give it a try again, after the kids go to bed though. Very similar decor as Les Halles.
Pros: good food, bar scene, good prices
Cons: , crowded, kid-friendly
