Little River Beer Garden is now open at Riverpark, Tom Colicchio's modern American restaurant overlooking the East River in Kips Bay. Adjacent to Riverpark's expansive patio and 15,000 square-foot urban farm, Little River Beer Garden is a casual, outdoor destination for local & craft beers, wine and food from Riverpark's executive chef Andrew Smith, beverage director Dusan Vranic and pastry chef Geoffry Koo.
A selection of refreshing and easy-to-drink draft beer from Long Island Beer Project is available by the pint or pitcher, along with a menu of wines served by the glass or carafe. A grapefruit wine cooler is also available, as well as buzz-free refreshers such as a cucumber lemonade.
A raw bar accompanies summer-inspire d dishes such as peel & eat shrimp, fish tacos, a lobster roll, fried chicken sandwich and a burger. For dessert, Koo looks to the adjacent farm to inspire simple yet refreshing sweets such as mango-passion fruit granita, strawberries & cream and house-made popsicles.
Little River Beer Garden overlooks the East River with picnic-table seating and counter-style service. At night, string lights twinkle overhead to illuminate the beer garden, while trees provide a shady retreat from the daytime summer sun. Later this month, the team will begin offering board & backyard games.
