This past Sunday, Manhattan yelpers trekked up to 145th & Riverbank to get a first hand look at one of the best hidden gems the borough has to offer. Tian at the Riverbank situated in Riverbank State Park offers an array of Asian and Latin fusion cooking, served against quite the enjoyable backdrop along the Hudson River. For years Tian was an event space with funky hours and a bit of a personality crisis, but beginning in April, they're getting a facelift and heading in a new direction with a focused cocktail and culinary program… and this past Sunday Funday, Manhattan yelpers got a taste.
With everything from duck confit sliders to sesame oil calamari and everything in between… tastes from around the flavor spectrum hit the collective palates of all in attendance.
In addition to foodstuffs, alcohol aplenty fueled this daytime shindig. With boozy delights from Cabin Fever maple-infused whiskey, Dickel Rye, Ciroc vodka, Little Black Dress white and red varietals, and Brooklyn Lager… attaining a midday buzz was anything but impossible. Of course, beats from DJ Kev G helped set the building ablaze as well.
