“The River Café opened in June of 1977 in a forgotten and abandoned neighborhood by the Brooklyn docks – desolate except for trucks waiting to enter the piers. When Michael Buzzy O’Keeffe first “found” this spot, it was barren and devoid of life. To him, this small strategic piece of chaotic waterfront was special – lacking any civility, but with wonderful possibilities. This was the oasis that...

No place in the city combines spectacle with hideaway intimacy and undiluted romance the way the River Café does.

Stunning view of the Manhattan skyline from across the river! Very attentive service and delicious food! If going from Manhattan (and you have the right shoes….), take a taxi over and walk the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan for a memorable experience!
