Located in Riverside Park at the end of 79th Street on the Hudson River. There is an open air patio that overlooks the Marina and the Hudson River with nice views of the sunsets over New Jersey (it always feels nice to be looking at NJ, cause that way you know you´re not in NJ. Bada boom! Just kidding! I can never pass up a chance to take a cheap shot at this fine state). The covered Rotunda section in the middle of the restaurant has limestone arches overlooking the open air patio. The food is OK (no french fries, onion rings yes, but no french fries, go figure) and vibe feels a tad like a second rate country club, but hey you come here for the location; perfect for shooting the breeze on a laid back afternoon.
Hours: Apr-Aug: Daily, noon-11:30pm, Sept-Oct: Mon-Wed, noon-8pm; Thu-Fri, noon-10pm; Sat-Sun, 11am-10pm; Nov-April, closed
