Venue Features
The Scene:

Our restaurant is tucked beneath the Manhattan Bridge on the edge of the East River. Our floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the downtown skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. While the days are sun-drenched, the evenings yield stunning sunsets and a glimmering city beyond the river.

The view unfolds before you as soon as you step into our dining room. Retractable glass doors divide our dining room from our seasonal terrace which sprawls out over the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge Park. This open-air space is surrounded by the verdant Brooklyn Bridge Park and a lush planter which features a bounty of herbs, grasses, and small flowering plants from the North-East. It’s a gorgeous space for an on-site ceremony or welcome cocktail hour and it’s part of any private event held here.

Design:
The space is designed to feel like you've stepped into a dream dinner party thrown at a beautifully designed home in Lebanon in the 60s. The room is upscale but approachable and thoroughly unpretentious. Pale ash wood contrasts with custom-pressed teal tiles and an abundance of plants. Little personal details are dotted throughout the room, like a pair of bronze cats peering out over our copper bar; these midcentury modern touches are meant to evoke a palpable feeling of being in someone's home, which is echoed in our warm style of service and family-style dining.
Extra Perks:
Anything and everything that's used for service is part of an event here! That extends to the basics like dining chairs and tables, glassware, cutlery, and plateware, but this also covers use of our votive candles and our small bud vases. We have a wide range of beautiful serving platters for family-style dinners and buffets, as well as 40 additional chairs for an on-site ceremony and a second wooden-clad bar for serving drinks on the terrace (though as it's on wheels, it can go wherever you'd like it to).
