“Milk River is a Brooklyn Neighborhood Restaurant featuring a Caribbean/Asian inspired cuisine incorporating Chef/Owner La-Niece’s Jamaican and Chinese background. Located on a non-descript industrial block, the bi-level restaurant, bar, lounge and venue is a neighborhood oasis.
Milk River is the brainchild of Chef La-Niece Lyew, a Brooklyn native whose ethnic background is part Jamaican and part Chinese. She named the restaurant after Milk River in Clarendon, Jamaica – a popular hot springs and mineral spa. The name not only represents the direction of the food, it symbolizes the fact that the restaurant is a communal center for residents of Prospect Heights and beyond, enriching the neighborhood with its warm and welcoming presence.
Our goal is to serve remarkable dishes and cocktails. That the menu and refreshments we offer meets the highest standards of quality, freshness and seasonality and combines both modern-creative and traditional styles of cooking. Our mission is to consistently provide our guests with impeccable service by demonstrating warmth, graciousness, efficiency, knowledge, professionalism and integrity in our work. To have every guest who comes through our doors leave impressed by our employees and us and excited to come back again. Create and maintain a restaurant that is comprehensive and exceptional in its attention to every detail of operation. To provide all who work with us a friendly, cooperative and rewarding environment that encourages long- term, satisfying, growth employment. To keep our concept fresh, exciting and on the cutting edge of the hospitality and entertainment industry. To be a giving member of the Brooklyn community and to use our restaurant to showcase the Chef/owner roots.”
