With the release of his photo book Curse of the Black Gold: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta, photojournalist Ed Kashi will also have an exhibition of photographs from the book which examines the impact of oil exploitation in Nigeria. RICE not surprisingly offers a pretty intense variety of rice, from brown to Bhutanese red. Most of the rice based dishes come in large and small sizes. Right below RICE is Low Bar, an extremely convenient place to grab a drink and catch some great DJs spin in a lounge environment. Right off the water, with a view of the South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn Bridge so close you can touch it, the only thing that could make this view better is ice cream. You’ll usually find a long line for Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, but the sweet flavors are worth it!
