Fodor's Expert Review The River Café

$$$$ Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn Modern American Fodor's Choice
A deservedly popular special-occasion destination, this waterfront institution complements its exquisite Brooklyn Bridge views with memorable top-shelf cuisine served by an unfailingly attentive staff. Lobster, lamb, duck, and strip steak are among the staples of the prix-fixe menu ($138 for dinner, $47 for Saturday lunch, $60 for Sunday brunch). The chocolate Brooklyn Bridge mousse delivers the perfect ending to dinner. Jackets are required for men after 4 pm.
