New York Buzz -- Seafood Restaurant to Open by Upcoming Staten Island Wheel


The upcoming giant ferris wheel not enough of a reason to explore New York City's Staten Island? How about this, then: Gothamist is reporting that the Staten Island Ferry terminal will be getting its first sit-down restaurant later this year, and that it will be called the River Dock Cafe.

The restaurant will be run by restaurateur Sal Himani, who reportedly wants to turn the eatery into "a destination for seafood lovers." The restaurant will have top  views of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan.

When it opens later this year (no set date yet), the new restaurant will serve American food and seafood. And about those views: The 4,500-square-foot restaurant will include an additional 2,000-square-foot terrace overlooking the SI Yankees ballpark as well as the harbor, lower Manhattan and, eventually, that Staten Island Wheel.
