The Osprey

$$$$3476962505
Hours:FRI
5PM-11PM

The Osprey isn’t just another overpriced waterfront hotel restaurant. While it is pricey, in a hotel, and on the waterfront, the food here is legitimately good.

Start by ordering the pull-apart roll with salmon rillettes topped with Ossetra caviar. (It’s $45 bread, but it's worth it.) The salads are excellent—pretty much all of the ingredients are local and sustainably sourced—and the rotisserie-style jerk chicken is good enough to warrant a solo meal when you don't feel like cooking.

It’s easy to get a walk-in or a last-minute reservation, even for a big group, so this is a great option to have in your back pocket. Time your dinner right and you’re just steps away from the ideal post-meal walk to take in the sunset from Brooklyn Bridge Park.
