Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

Don’t give up on mall dining just yet. At the edge of the outdoor Assembly Row shopping center, the glass-and-marble appointed River Bar caters to shoppers who seek more than teriyaki chicken and an Orange Julius. A seasonal, Asian-influenced menu includes small plates like vegetable kimchi as well as entrées like whole grilled fish and a Chinese sausage sub. A well-curated wine list makes for a nice shopping pause at the bar; the outdoor patio stays open all year thanks to fire pits and heat lamps.
