IN THE HOOD: GREENPOINT – RIVER STYX

riverstyxmain

One of our favorite parts about Greenpoint is that a lot of the attractions are off the beaten path. Those familiar with the neighborhood know that while some of the best restaurants and bars aren’t a few steps from the most convenient forms of public transportation in NYC, they’re worth the trek and worth uncovering. River Styx, opened last summer, is no exception to that rule. If you’re checking out River Styx’s dinner, OAK recommends starting with the chicken pate and seafood sausage, and trying one of their excellent pasta dishes as your entree. As for drinks, there’s a great cocktail for everyone, with standouts including the Beastmode for rum lovers, and the Puny Human for a fresh take on a whiskey drink.
