River Barrel in Greenpoint is totally different (and AMAZING) now (Korean)...think it's re-naming soon
totally different menu, totally different kitchen and chef (see :http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/684358). we went there last week and were highly impressed with the food we got: Korean fried chicken, "Korean hot dog" (housemade lemongrass pork sausage with housemade kimchee and hot sauce on a roll), great Brussels sprouts with denjang, boquerones and wasabi greens crostini...
I live a few blocks away and am excited to see what happens when it re-opens with a new name/look (soon, I hear). for now, they ARE running the new menu, and it's delicious.
