Long Island City
The nighttime view of Gotham’s spires from the Queens waterfront is spectacular but disorienting. Where are we again? Oh, yeah, there’s the Pepsi sign. Riverfront is located in a slick space on the ground floor of a high-rise in a Battery Park City–style waterfront development. The food takes a fresh approach to nouveau American. A rewarding filet mignon comes with truffled taro-root puree; tuna tartare comes with wasabi roe. And they all come with sides of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings.
