I was visiting New York City and took my daughter to The River Cafe to celebrate her 25th birthday. We were seated right by the window, and it offered a wonderful view of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. Right across the river was the World Trade Center memorial. We could also see the Empire State Building on the other side. The decor was beautiful and the centerpieces were large bouquets of fresh roses. The food was superb and the service was excellent. We both had the lobster and lobster, which was a cold lobster tail in a kind of salad, paired with a grilled cheese and lobster sandwich. I recommend the Brooklyn Bridge dessert. The restaurant is pricey, but for a special occasion, we felt it was a unique and memorable experience.
