River Café

Opened in 1977 and having survived Hurricane Sandy, this place, being continuously voted “Most romantic restaurant in America”, with “the most photographed view” of Manhattan skyline, proudly sails into the future.

Are you the owner of this place?

Titled by Regina Schrambling of the New York Times “The Restaurant that Launched a Thousand Chefs”, this is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Brooklyn, definitely the most expensive one, finally a place where after 4 pm jackets are required for gentlemen and ties preferred. The view of Brooklyn Bridge ends up in your plate with its miniature rendered in chocolate.

Everything here serves to transport the diner to a different place and time, including romantic piano music every night, floral arrangements and the on-site garden. All the food is carefully sourced and in many ways The River Café were pioneers (the term “free range chicken” was coined here as well). Awards received and films shot on location are propped up by prix fixe menus: 3 courses of your choice or 6 by the chef. Salmon, caviar, lamb, oysters, and lobsters are a few to be named.
