    The River Cafe
  • The River Café
    Few restaurants can match The River Café's location in Brooklyn, nestled under the Brooklyn Bridge, peering across the East River at the downtown Manhattan skyline. And though it's been in business since 1977, owner Michael "Buzzy" O'Keeffe has always been vigilant about serving top-notch, luxurious food with inventive tweaks, like grilled dorade fillet with artichoke puree and verjus vinaigrette as well as Colorado rack of lamb with mint and mustard seed glaze and golden fondant potatoes.
