Cuisine Contemporary

More than $75

Owner Buzzy O'Keefe has painstakingly restored this dreamy dwelling, in one of the most divine nooks in town. In fact, The River Café has bounced back to its very special self, despite the havoc inflicted by Hurricane Sandy. Perks that were part of its original glory remain, including free parking and an incredibly romantic space, complete with breathtaking vistas cherished by city birds and foodies from all corners of the world. Chef Brad Steelman is still onboard, cooking his solid-as-ever cuisine. Find proof of this on the crest of well-dressed tables attended to by smooth and professional servers. Lofty windows overlooking the river and FiDi skyline just beyond serve as an ideal backdrop for such fine cuisine as sweet, creamy Dungeness crab tossed in a citrus marinade and topped with fragrant ribbons of basil. The same elegance, simplicity, and supreme freshness rule the roost in Pacific Blue shrimp prepared "Oscar Style" with a creamy Maltaise sauce and paired with white poached asparagus. Rose bouquets atop every table are as wonderfully extravagant as the café's chocolate marquise, crowned with thin dark chocolate formed into the "Brooklyn Bridge" and kissed with raspberry mousse.
