I have a new fave spot in the city - Riverpark, a hidden gem under the direction of Tom Colicchio. The man (boyfriend, not Tom) and I went a few weeks ago to celebrate our anniversary and we had a time! The produce is supplied by Riverpark Farm, which is adjacent to the restaurant on 29th Street, overlooking the East River. It’s crazytown to see this lush, beautiful plot of vegetables and herbs amid the skyscrapers of New York City.
Urban farms are all the rage now, but this one takes the cake! There’s one farm table that you can reserve for large parties if you’re looking for a unique dining experience, but the terrace off the main dining area is just as fancy. The drinks are divine and the food is delish. Best part - the staff is beyond nice. If you live in the city or just visiting, you must add Riverpark to your list of places to check out.
