There are hardly a few things more amorous than fine dining with the view of the ocean or a river. Imagine being on a ship that’s slightly swaying in the water. The waiter gets you and your partner a couple glasses of old wine as you both look into the water, the reflection of the moon that’s all but perfect but beautiful nonetheless. Pretty romantic, right?
We can’t promise you a ship, but you might just be able to get a beautiful evening and a scrumptious meal out of this. Opt for a bus transit from New York City to and be on your way to one of these waterfront restaurants.
Here’s a list of some of the best waterfront restaurants in New York City:
1. The River Café
1 Water St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
The River Café is one of Brooklyn’s most cherished treasures. Dining here is everything you’d imagine it’d be. Although it’s one of the most expensive restaurants in the area, the experience here is exquisite. Marvelous views of downtown Manhattan, meals prepared by some exceptionally talented chefs and the whole vibe is scented with romance. Do try their lobster specials.
450 E 29th St, New York, NY 10016, USA
One of, celebrity chef, Tom Colicchio’s creations, Riverpark is true romance in profusion. The restaurant has splendid views of The East River with floor to roof windows and super plush seating. They offer a really versatile and seasonal farm-to-table menu but the oysters, crab salad, scallops with mushrooms and pork chops with apple and Brussels sprout hash are the ones to look out for.
3. Pier A Harbour House
22 Battery Pl, New York, NY 10004, USA
This is the closest you can come to dining at a mock-lighthouse like setting. The pier has been opened to the public after 127 years. The first thing that catches the eye is the clock tower that looks like it’s from another time and then there is the spectacular view. The restaurant itself is divided into 3 sections: The first level is a bar with pricey beer on tap, oysters and clams, the second is a dining hall divided further into four pieces, each named and vibes differently, and the third level is reserved for parties, events and book clubs.
