In the News: Steamers Landing

••• “Steamers Landing [right] opened on the Battery Park City esplanade between Liberty and Albany Streets more than 26 years ago, but Jan. 2, 2011 will be its last day. The restaurant will close for two weeks. When it reopens on Jan. 17, it will have a new name, a new menu and new décor. As Merchants River House, the restaurant will serve American regional food with most appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches priced under $10. Most entrées will cost less than $18. The menu will include pizza, rotisserie chicken, prime rib, salads, steaks and pastas. There will also be some seafood choices and a special kids’ menu with items such as mac and cheese, chicken fingers and vegetables.” (Downtown Express)
