About Penny Bridge
Located in the JACX Building, the new live-work-play development by Tishman Speyer in the heart of Long Island City, Penny Bridge’s menu is inspired by American diners and simple comfort food, with the seasonal ingredients and playful techniques Dan Kluger is known for. The menu is fun and approachable featuring crave-able dishes like homemade mozzarella sticks made with herbs, fontina, parmesan and paired with a smoked tomato sauce; classics like baked clams and spicy chicken wings, each with its own twist; a "traditional" Turkey Club made with house smoked turkey and bacon, layered on Bien Cuit bread; a lobster burger; and a filet mignon inspired by Kluger's dad’s meatloaf.
Penny Bridge has been designed in collaboration with INC Architecture & Design and Richard Lewis Architects. The restaurant has 26 foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and large cement columns running throughout, and features a color-scheme of varying blues, grays, and yellows, with natural wood and an eye-catching custom wood-and-LED chandelier light fixture by StickBulb, an LIC based company. Furthering its connection to the neighborhood itself, the name Penny Bridge was inspired by a now-dormant Long Island Railroad station that used to serve residents and industry in the Long Island City area.
Penny Bridge is the second restaurant from Chef Dan Kluger who also opened Loring Place located in Greenwich Village in December 2016 along with the to-go only grandma pizza concept Washington Squares which opened in December 2020.
