As rumored, the people behind Williamsburg favorite Roebling Tea Room are opening a new restaurant near Transmitter Park in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Chef Dennis Spina says that it will be called River Styx (the space sits about 100 feet away from the East River) and he hopes to have it open by the middle of April. Expect something similar in spirit to Roebling Tea Room. Although that restaurant does not garner the same amount of acclaim as other 'Burg hot spots like Diner and St. Anselm, it has its fair share of die-hard fans. The Bastille Day dinners are legendary, and the regular menu always has a lot of variety.
With the openings of River Styx, Achilles Heel, and Tørst on the horizon, it's shaping up to be a very good year for dining in Greenpoint.
