The Love Boat
NY’s greatest new date resto is on a really old ship
Dinner cruises have a poor reputation, as they tend to be bookended by suburbanites oohing and ahing at the Jersey skyline and overserved grannies doing the Electric Slide.
We promise you: this dinner cruise is very, very different.
The Water Table is housed inside The Revolution — an actual WWII-era Navy Yard patrol boat and former minesweeper (sadly, not Prince’s backup band) — which has been fully retrofitted into an enclosed, candle-cozy, wood-planked resto one would expect of Greenpoint’s cobbled streets.
Only difference being: this one leaves Greenpoint to ply the East River down around the Statue of Liberty and back.
And true to its Brooklyn home, The Water Table features a menu of seasonal comfort grub, like corn chowder with applewood smoked ham, mussel salad with roasted fennel, and butterscotch cookies with a shot of rum.
Holiday party? The Water Table can also be rented out for up to 40 guests, complete with custom menu.
We can get on-board with that.
