We took my parents to this restaurant mainly to revive old memories of Nick's Seafood Pavilion, which closed after the death of the owners and was demolished after it received a lot of damage from hurricane Irene. Nick's was an institution for many years and had some specialty dishes on their menu that were loved by many of it's patrons. It turns out that Nick's chef, Jimmy. who is now in his 70s, is still making many of those dishes at the restaurant connected with the Duke of York Motel. I believe that the actual name of the restaurant is the Riverview Restaurant. One of the most famous dishes there is the Lobster Dien Bien. This is something like a lobster paella, but the seasonings are all different. Rice, mushrooms, green onions, tomato, and huge pieces of fresh Maine lobster cooked with browned butter. It is an amazing dish. All of the fish is fresh and cut by Jimmy, himself. Shellfish is also treated wonderfully. The restaurant is very plain, an ironic twist for anyone who ever had the opportunity to visit the Pavilion where Jimmy cooked for Nick. There is a lot of history in the area. Washington beat Cornwallis to win the Revolutionary War in Yorktown, and it is all there for you to visit. History repeats itself again too with the Riverview Restaurant of the Duke of York Motel, at least for a now, while Chef Jimmy produces the masterpieces of a vanished seafood icon, Nick's Seafood Pavilion. Go soon to relive or to sample a meal from the past.
