A prime Williamsburg location. A space that’s shared with an indie music venue. A menu that includes both vegan salads and bone marrow. A name that makes you think of motorcycle jackets, and also a rich person’s toddler.
Rider must be the coolest restaurant in Brooklyn, right?
At first glance, Rider is an easy choice for a night out in Williamsburg. And if you do end up here, you’ll be pleased with the food. It’s well-executed across the board, with healthy-ish options and a couple real standouts. The service is also friendly. And the whole tip-included thing continues to trick us into thinking we’re getting a deal.
But Rider doesn’t have a whole lot of magic. That special quality that makes you feel like you are truly winning at life. Or at least in your restaurant decision.
