Sources tell The Daily that Riverwalk Bar & Grill, Roosevelt Island's most popular venue for food, drink, casual get togethers and business meetings, plans to shutdown operations as of the close of business on Monday, September 3rd, Labor Day.

Nothing official has been announced, but our sources say that the restaurant has been or is about to be taken over by new owners, and renovations are being planned that include eliminating the deli section.

Riverwalk Bar & Grill has been a stable Roosevelt Island resource since it opened as 425 Main Street laid an early footprint in Southtown. The complex of high rise residential buildings continues to grow, and the restaurant, managed by Jonathan Hoo, a part-owner, appears to flourish.

Is Riverwalk Bar & Grill Closing?

We will be working to uncover additional details over the weekend that may confirm the closure and inform us of what to expect next.
