EDIBLE BROOKLYN: 5 Restaurants Making Brooklyn Bridge Park a Dining Destination
July 26, 2017
While Brooklyn Bridge Park has slowly transformed into a waterfront oasis over the years, the one thing that hasn’t quite kept up is the food.
Until recently, visitors to the park had only a few options: dish out for dinner at River Café
, brave the lines at Grimaldi’s or try to snag a picnic table at Fornino. With the opening of a luxury hotel and the Empire Stores complex, however, Brooklyn Bridge Park is now one of the borough’s emerging neighborhoods for dining. Here, where to eat and what to order at the park’s most exciting new spots.
SUGARCANE raw bar grill + Smile to Go
55 Water St.
These two spots (set to open in August) will bring even more delicious food to Empire Stores. Already popular in Las Vegas and Miami, SUGARCANE will serve up globally inspired small plates from a raw bar, open-fire grill and traditional kitchen, all just steps from Jane’s Carousel. Located in the rear of the Shinola store, Smile to Go will offer a rotating selection of healthy, Mediterranean-inspired fare, plus baked goods from The Smile’s pastry chef Rosanne Smith.
