Restaurant of the Month: Industry Kitchen
Last month, we shared with you one of Manhattan’s key rooftop dining spots to experience during the summer season, Serra. This month, we’re taking it one step further and showcasing a restaurant that not only provides tons of outdoor seating (which is saying a lot for NYC when space is so rare and valuable), but the restaurant is also right on the East River, giving you gorgeous water views while you eat. What’s the restaurant, you ask? Why, Industry Kitchen!
Located Downtown, Industry Kitchen is nestled in the Financial District by the historic South Street Seaport. The restaurant is a whopping 5,000 square feet (basically unheard of as far as Manhattan restaurants go) and can accommodate up to 300 guests, meaning you’ll never have to wait long for an outdoor table overlooking the water. All seats here are good seats, and deliver views of the Brooklyn skyline, as well as both the Brooklyn and Williamsburg bridges.
The restaurant boasts an industrial vintage vibe, using materials such as reclaimed wood and raw concrete. There’s floor to ceiling windows, so even if you do choose to sit indoors you can still appreciate the views. For true foodies, you have the option of sitting at a table which overlooks the kitchen, so you can see the food prep and magic in the making.

If we didn’t have you at the views, we’re fairly certain the food will do it for you! This is a spot that features fabulous all-American dishes, catering to those brunch goers that can’t live without their avocado toast ($14) as well as lunchers who appreciate a pot of mussels soaked in garlic and white wine for their al fresco meal ($18).
After your starters, you’ll want to try the famous Industry Signature Salad, combining dill, parsley, tomato, fennel, carrot, watermelon radish, and basil jalapeno vinaigrette ($12). Pair this with one of their legendary wood fired pizzas, such as the Bacon Sweet Potato, with cheddar, rosemary, chipotle aioli, and chives ($20), or for vegetarians the Herbed Goat Cheese, with arugula, wild mushroom, and a healthy glug of truffle oil ($18). Or, if you really want to get crazy and live on the edge (or maybe just have something super huge to celebrate?!) check out their Guinness World Record 24K Pizza. This $2,000 dish includes Stilton, foie gras, platinum Ossetra caviar, truffle, and 24K gold leaves. For an extra $700 you can add on 1.5 ounces of Almas Caviar. The pizza must be ordered 48 hours in advance, so plan ahead for this one!
Finally, for dessert there’ss two items that can’t be passed up: the Chocolate River, dark chocolate lava cake, coconut sorbet, berry coulis, and whipped cream ($14), or if you have people to share it with, go with the Industry Puff, which is puff pastry, burnt sugar ice cream, whipped cream, toasted almonds, melted dark chocolate ($20).
Good To Know
Along with being an awesome spot to eat any time of day (particularly the nice ones!) Industry Kitchen also hosts regular events. For Independence Day, for example, they had a special celebration featuring the Revolution Burger, which was 25lbs Kobe beef patty, 2lbs bacon, 2lbs American cheese, 1lb tomato/onion compote, and 1 head of lettuce on a 24” brioche bun ($150). What better (of yummier) way to celebrate the 4th than by digging into that deliciousness with your closest meat loving friends as fireworks grace the NYC skyline ?
Reservations can be made to Industry Kitchen via OpenTable. Glenwood residents living in the Barclay Tower, Tribeca Bridge Tower, and Liberty Plaza will enjoy the long summer days dining by the water in their neighborhood.
