Dinner at Riverpark this past Thursday was a wow! We’ve been there a number of times, and the food just seems to get better and better. Started with a pea flan with peekytoe crab salad, which was the essence of Spring, and crispy sweetbreads. Stanley had brisket ravioli for the main course, and it was scrumptious, but the piece de resistance was my Southern style rabbit. This was an assortment of various rabbit parts, each prepared in a different way. The various flavors blended harmoniously while offering an interesting contrast. We drank Sierra Nevada Porter, which was a perfect match for the food. For dessert we shared a banana peanut sundae. This was heavenly.
With its out-of-the-way location on the East River at 29th St., it’s not the easiest place to get to, but it is worth the trek. The prices are not low, but for the quality of the food and the innovative combinations, it’s well worth the tariff.
