Casual (Lunch) First Date - DUMBO Vic.

I'm going on a date with a girl who recently moved to NY and thought a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge tomorrow - with what's supposed to be perfect weather - would make for a fun experience. I live nearby in BK Heights but we'll be walking over from City Hall, thought it would be fun to walk around DUMBO too but I want to make sure I have a solid lunch idea.

Was thinking Hecho en Dumbo, tasty small plates and good drinks if we're in the mood. Never been to Superfine, do they even have a lunch menu? Another idea I had was to pick up something at Foragers and eat by BK Bridge Park. I don't think Rice is anything special, but they do have outside seating at least. Anything else?

  1. Sorry you did not get any replies before your date! You probably learned that Hecho en Dumbo is not open for lunch (nor is Five Front). But I think that Grimaldi's, Superfine and Rice are all open for lunch -- as well as River Cafe, if you have millions!

    Where did you end up?

      Ya I was trying to think of everwyehre I've been in DUMBO and theyre either not open for lunch, or not very good. We walked down to Smith Street instead.
