Restaurant Review: The Osprey, 1Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, New York in the USA
A restaurant situated next to the river, The Osprey restaurant resides in one of New York’s most trendy hotels: 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge and has been cunningly named after a bird that will only nest next to two things: food and water.
Dishing up an all-day dining experience led by market-driven American comfort food served just steps from the East River and Brooklyn Bridge – The Osprey serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a brunch menu exclusive to the weekend. Driving its culinary energy out from the open kitchen across the dining space, floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River waterfront, bringing the outdoors in. Designed to be a natural sanctuary, the space features plenty of natural and exposed wood with hanging plants above and on the tables around whilst natural light fills the large room, making The Osprey restaurant an ideal daytime spot.
In this a cosmopolitan city, brunch is a popular weekend ritual and its weekend offering is extremely popular to both hotels guests and those passing by. Offering a mix of fresh juices and light cocktails, richer Bloody Mary’s and a wide wine list – the bar offers something for all whether it’s the crack of dawn or mid-afternoon. Our rustic wooden table is filled with smaller starters: from a brightly coloured cauliflower salad to share, European inspired steak tartare and a fish pate with toast served in a small jar, served on a wooden board. Following this, a mix of veggie and beef burgers with New York’s famous fries and a special of the day: steak and eggs satisfy our Saturday afternoon appetites.
Whether you’re stopping by or staying at 1Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, its already renowned rooftop bar is a must visit. Open seasonally with some of the best views of Brooklyn Bridge and downtown Manhattan, jet up in the hotel’s lift to enjoy a menu of fresh inventive cocktails and summer inspired bar snacks with an exclusive setting that is an ideal date night or gathering spot on warmer days.
Moments from Brooklyn’s trendiest neighbourhood: Dumbo and the heritage of Brooklyn Heights, 1Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is a 10-storey building with 195 guest rooms and suites. The hotel has also hugely grown in popularity with locals with a collection of welcoming minimalist communal spaces for working or simply relaxing. The hotel also has a fitness centre, grab and go café and glamourous plunge pool on its rooftop to discover.
