Lonely Planet review for River Café
Situated at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, this floating wonder offers beautiful views of downtown Manhattan – not to mention solidly rendered French-American cooking. Specialties include duck breast glazed with white truffle honey and oysters topped with lemon-pepper hollandaise, caramelized onions and bacon. Don’t miss the apple tart. The atmosphere is sedate (jackets are required after 5pm) but incurably romantic.
