The Water Table: Cruising for Romance


Brooklyn’s waterfront restaurants are famous anniversary destinations, but to take date night to the next level, think about leaving shore. For your next big romantic outing this spring, climb aboard The Water Table, a World War II-era patrol boat that serves up three-course dinners and stunning city views. When you reach the dock in Greenpoint and see the wooden hull of The Revolution, you’ll know you’re in for an adventure. Hold your significant other close as you step up onto refurbished decks. Like the borough that hosts it, the boat is rustic and the crew easy-going. As you head out onto the water, thrill at the priceless views that surround you. Maybe the tides will favor a circle around Manhattan, with stunning vantages of the bridges along the way. Keep the celebratory mood going with a visit to the cocktail menu. There are classics like a smooth Old Fashioned, and house innovations like the Captain’s Widow, with lavender bitters and Bombay. The dishes change with the seasons, but the focus stays on New England flavors and local ingredients all year round. What could make dessert even sweeter? Only a close-up of the Statue of Liberty, with the sunset behind it. On the ride back to port, lean in close and sip some vintage rum. You’ll feel like proper sailors.
