Red Hat on the River

One Bridge St, Irvington-On-Hudson

This French-American bistro sits right on the waterfront in Irvington, where every seat offers a beautiful view of the Hudson River.

The evolved menu offers some Italian, Spanish, and American regional cuisine influences for a little more flare and flavor. Red Hat on the River is all about local using New York State purveyors, the local farmer’s market, and meat, poultry, and fish that are organic, wild, or sustainably raised. With updated menus in the spring, winter, summer, and fall, it ensures that diners always have something new to try.

Open for brunch and dinner Thursday and Friday from noon to 8 p.m., Saturday 4-9 p.m., and Sunday noon to 7:30 p.m.
