Steamer’s Landing Downtown Converts to Merchant’s River House

Last summer, the operator of the Merchants restaurants around town acquired Steamer’s Landing, a riverfront restaurant all the way Downtown with views of the Statue of Liberty. The Merchants team (which includes executive chef, Chopped winner Wade Burch) just transformed the space into Merchants River House, which will have a more casual, lower-priced selection. Think burgers, pizza, rotisserie chicken and salads – most burgers and sandwiches will be priced under $10, while most entrees will be available for under $18. For boozing options while staring out over the river, think plenty of pints and 60-oz. pitchers (375 S. End Ave.; 212-432-1451).
