2017: Brooklyn Voted River Café Best Atmosphere!
One Water Street (718) 522-5200 www.therivercafe.com
This landmark eatery in the heart of DUMBO is renowned not just for its superb food and refined service but, perhaps most notably, for its breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor. First opened in June of 1977, the restaurant – now newly renovated – has been serving up an American menu (which blends both classic and innovative cooking techniques with American and international styles) as well as an unbeatable atmosphere. Its views aside, the décor at River Café is enough to take the cake alone. Walk in and be transported, as River Café is more than just an award-winning restaurant – it’s an experience. No wonder it’s the best in the borough.
