7/24/15 NYC Restaurant Week: Riverpark

A year ago, I stepped into Riverpark during NYC Restaurant Week (Yelp review here) and fell in love immediately. I knew I had to come back again. Its RW menu is only available for weekday lunch.


Last year, I opted for outdoor terrace seating which had a spectacular vibe: overlooking the East River with a slight breeze. This time, since I was dining with my father, we chose to stay indoors and luckily got a window seat. I’ve had nothing but great service both times.

The Restaurant Week lunch menu includes 3 courses for $25.


Manhattan clam chowder.


Cow’s Milk Burratini || Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes, Peaches, Basil, Breadcrumbs — I must say, this was the highlight of my meal; it was super fresh and it was the best cheese I’ve ever had. Loved the herbs and peaches. The breadcrumbs added a nice crunch to the soft cheese.


Prawns A La Plancha ($5 SUPPLEMENT) || Grilled Corn, Shisito Peppers, Cotija, Lime-Pickled Onions, Delfino Cilantro


Hanger Steak & Bone Marrow ($10 SUPPLEMENT) || Balsamic Onions, Charred Tomatoes, Broccolini, Fingerling Potatoes


I love everything about this restaurant. Simple and modern decor, friendly service, farm to table meals.



Ice Cream || Sweet Corn & Mint Chocolate Chip — LOVED these flavors and the real mint! Nothing artificial about them.


“Cereal & Milk” ($5 SUPPLEMENT) || Chocolate Ganache Cake, Caramelized Rice Puffs, Vanilla Malt — the cake was a little too sweet for my taste, but nevertheless an overall great dessert.


Riverpark still remains one of my favorite restaurants because of their fresh ingredients, amazing atmosphere and ever-changing creative menus.
