The River Room, Harlem+

“The view is magic… The long northern wall of the restaurant is floor-to-ceiling glass facing the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge… a broad span of glittering lights… a sensational view.
Much of the food… explores Southern cuisine — defined broadly — and what might be called elevated soul food… I tried a fillet of striped bass encrusted with corn meal and okra. The contrast between the gritty, crunchy exterior and the moist interior made for a very fine dish.
Service… was definitely earnest and often charismatic. Both of the waitresses who interacted with our table had senses of humor and senses of just how much conversation we wanted and didn't and when.”
