In Chef Armando’s own words:
“Growing up in a closely knit family, every meal was an experience and gathering place for multiple family members, which inspired me to make cooking my profession. I feel a great sense of responsibility and passion about making every meal at the River Bar a memorable experience. The menu I have created uses French and European techniques because I find their focus on passion and finesse inspiring. My mother instilled in me that passion is what makes life worth living and I can’t wait to share my passion for cooking with you.”
River Bar Lounge
Enjoy some good company and a vintage malt whiskey, port, or cognac in a great atmosphere at the new River Bar Lounge. Grand leather chairs. Wood-paneled walls. Old nautical charts and exquisite paintings. And a ceiling made of heart of cypress and pecky cypress beams more than 200 years old. An extension of the River Bar restaurant, the lounge oozes charm and character, the perfect backdrop for nightcap, a relaxing bite, or to catch the game on TV.
