The Greenpoint waterfront gets an infusion of Mediterranean dining with this 74-seat restaurant, from the crew behind Roebling Tea Room. Chef Dennis Spina crafts a menu highlighting sustainably sourced seafood, including a shellfish stew, and a giant raviolo topped with Taleggio, ramps and bottarga. He also spins thin-crust pizzetas from a red wood-fired oven in the open kitchen. Shore-inspired accents fill the 1,900-square-foot room, including a colorful tiled floor, glass light fixtures and sandy pink wall. Former Isa bartender Dmitri Bartlett mans the marble-topped bar, pouring all-natural European wines and Tiki cocktails, like a serrano-infused tequila and rye-whiskey-and-applejack sour.

River Styx is the perfect date spot. The interiors are beautiful – it’s a nautical theme so there are accents like ropes and massive hardware, but it doesn’t feel overly masculine. It has surprisingly nice light from a skylight during brunch and an interesting 3-level floor set up which make the back room feel cozy even though the whole space is very open and airy. If you pick places to eat based on ambiance, this place is a must. The menu’s not too shabby either! Try the nachos – they’re mildly spicy, but insanely good (they have pulled chicken as standard and a homemade queso sauce). They have a lot of seafood on the menu, but I tend towards their burger which is top-notch. This is a great place to go pre- or post- a lazy day in transmitter park.
