THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bridge Cafe Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED This cozy pub-café in a circa-1800 building is a stone's throw from the Brooklyn Bridge, and is one of the oldest restaurants in the city. But don't expect a captivating view---it's like looking at the bridge's ankles. Once the haunt of longshoremen and ladies-of-the-night, Bridge Café is now the watering hole of Wall Street executives. In season, soft-shell crabs in shallot butter is the best-selling dish, and for good reason. Other options include the lamb chops in a Cabernet and fresh herb reduction and the Buffalo steak with lingonberry sauce and homemade potato gnocchi. Try the warmed Maytag blue cheese soufflé with fruit and grapes in a port syrup to start, and end with the old-fashioned butterscotch pudding. The all-American wine list has a range of good choices, and Monday through Wednesday bottles are 30 percent off. A large selection of single malts is also available.
