Right now Greenpoint is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in a borough known for its booming food scene--it seems like a new bar, restaurant or shop opens pretty much every week. There's so much going on that sometimes big news can get lost. To wit, just before the holidays River Styx, on of our North Brooklyn faves, started offering party packages in their new private dining room. Unlimited nachos and beer for 30? They can do that. A pizza party with caesar salad, garlic knots, beer and wine? Yes. A spaghetti and meatballs party? Uh-huh. Unlimited nachos, beer, Discipline (their house tequila cocktail made with serrano peppers) and a cinnamon roll dessert course? Absolutely.
Forget those restaurant birthday parties where figuring out how much everyone owes becomes a challenge worthy of an AP calculus class. River Styx sidesteps that problem by offering all packages as a flat per-person rate, so your only complication is that one friend who never tips. Oh, and they're happy to do a brunch party as well.
