Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wondered about the restaurant off the FDR titled The Water Club. I always drove by it, thinking about how big the tabs are there and how beautiful it must look inside. Dreams came true when I went here for dinner and words couldn’t describe how it felt to go off the road and pull up to this huge boat made into a dining room. I wondered if membership to the club really did have it’s privileges.
It did. The staff was so kind to us and I could tell they were trained to take the extra time to provide exceptional customer service. Though our waiter was less attentive than I’d like, he seemed to know the menu better than expected and adhered to all of our needs. For starters, I had the Crab Bisque which consisted of the crab and croutons in the bowl first and the bisque added right after. It was a amazing texture battle on my tastebuds and I had a feeling my entree would be better.
I ordered the sweet diver scallops with pasta, which were big and juicy as I hoped they would be. Even after I decided to take most of it home, I realized they allowed you to take your bottle of wine home too. Not to mention, the filet mignon is to die for. Maybe the restaurant of your dreams is only a cab ride away too.
