Restaurants in Brooklyn

Any forum experts on some nice restaurants with quality food in Brooklyn (Dumbo or Brooklyn Heights) that we can also get great views over the bridge to Manhattan.

It will be about 6pm-7pm and must not have a dress code as we will have been out all day.

I have had a look at menupages but it doesn't really advise on the views.

Type of food is not an issue but more location prior to our walk back over the bridge.

Hi Sheepy, the obvious choice would be The River Cafe... http://www.rivercafe.com/information/

River Cafe has a dress code, though.

You could always get takeout and eat it at Brooklyn Bridge Park or the Promenade.

Yes, good point BB. The OP will have been out all day sightseeing if they stick to their plan as per other threads, so that wasn't the right choice. The River cafe seems to be a special occasion place.

JennyR I did notice the River cafe and it does look splendid, but not really for us after a long day walking about on visits down Lower Manahattan area due to dress code.

Anyone think of any restaurants that would have a view of Manhattan on the Brooklyn side ?

There is a restaurant called Alma in Brooklyn with a beautiful rooftop with great views of the skyline and it is a casual place.

BrroklynBridge & MoreFFMiles thanks a lot.

Alma looks very nice and the wife does adore a Mexican so you may had stumbled upon a winner there.

Thanks everyone for their input.
