Located on a unique garden plaza with romantic East River views, Riverpark represents a dynamic culinary destination in Manhattan’s Kips Bay neighborhood. Riverpark reflects Tom Colicchio's overall vision as restaurateur, and Chef Sisha Ortuzar's creative concept showcasing the restaurant's own urban farm just feet away from the kitchen. Riverpark's modern American menus change daily, highlighting seasonal ingredients from local farms, Greenmarkets and Riverpark Farm.

"We picked Riverpark first for its location, and second, because of the great reviews. We can attest that all of the wonderful things people are saying about this restaurant are 100 percent correct. The service was impeccable, the staff warm and welcoming and the view was lovely - not that you'd want to took away from the beautiful interior and away from your food. Absolutely delectable, from the skate to the lamb to the duck and beyond. The wine list was extraordinary and all four of us -- with four very different set of tastes -- were able to pick out exactly what we wanted, glass by glass. WIll be back, sooner than later!"

Chef Michael Cutney's newest Venture The Twisted Oak, takes a fun and casual approach to New American Fare with Italian Influences. Sourcing from Local Farmers and Growers,The Twisted Oak offers a daily changing menu featuring ingredients from the Hudson Valleys' Bounty. Located just steps away from the famed Tarrytown Music Hall, the Restaurant is set in a turn of the century photography studio. The main dining room is dressed with paintings from local artists and the bar, which was handcrafted from Oak Wine Barrels, you can expect to find boutique wines, seasonal cocktails, and local brews. The Twisted Oak is quickly becoming a neighborhood favorite with its delicious food, refined service, and excellent hospitality.

"My husband and I dined here before a recent Mavericks concert; the service was top-notch and the atmopshere was charming. We sat in the front, near the bar, rather than in the more formal dining room in the back and enjoyed being able to watch the street scene outside as the neighborhood children passed by in their Halloween costumes. One of the special cocktails was a martini called (I believe) a"Concord Smash" with fresh concord grape puree and St. germaine, it was a hit all around! We shared the roast chicken, which was plenty for us, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Would recommend it wholeheartedly and plan on returning."
