Brooklyn Bridge Park to Get New Waterfront Restaurant
The Post reports that the city's Parks Department is looking for a new waterfront restaurant for Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 6. The restaurant is expected to be similar to the River Cafe, which sits adjacent to the Fulton Ferry Landing.
Phil Abramson, a spokesman for the Parks Department, told the Post that "[p]arks recently sent a notice to (Community Board 2) that we are intending to issue an RFP (Request for Proposals) for a restaurant at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park."
The restaurant plans include space for outdoor seating that would take advantage of the views of Lower Manhattan and New York Harbor. One can only imagine how tempting such a project would be for empire-minded restaurateurs: having now extended his reach as far as Dubai, for example, can Danny Meyer resist the clarion call of Brooklyn?
