The River Café

A waterfront café in Brooklyn with the most incredible views of Manhattan.

By Emma Reynolds

Some of the most spectacular views of Manhattan can be found in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood at posh The River Café along the East River. Romantic and beautiful, the landmark restaurant is nestled right under the Brooklyn Bridge and is especially stunning at sunset. Request a seat near the window as you gaze at city views between bites. The River Café serves brunch, lunch and dinner, and is the perfect location for a special occasion. The new American menu, courtesy of chef Brad Steelman, changes seasonally and features the best cuts of meat, oysters, seafood and many vegetable-forward dishes, and has a special caviar service that’s not to be missed. The one-Michelin-starred restaurant has a live pianist, Dom Salvador, who has been playing at The River Café for more than 41 years (the restaurant first opened in 1977), and also has incredible service and amazing flower arrangements that make even an average night feel like a celebration. Chef Steelman’s standout dishes include the Wagyu steak tartare, poached lobster and for dessert, the chocolate marquise.
