    We came as a group of 4 & had a server kick us out because two of our 4 were only getting drinks not food. Two eating, 4 drinking & the guy tells us to leave with many other tables open. Unbelievable.

    Great for weekend brunch. Arugula and goat cheese omelet is great. Tuna wrap - YUM! Dog friendly!

    Bike along the west side greenway (read-carless!) - can go all the way up to GW Bridge! But if not so ambitious, stop along the Boat Basin + reward yourself w/a burger

    One of NYC'S finest bar/restaurant spaces run by college bar management serving shit food slowly and obliviously. How is that possible? Could make so much more of that place.

    Mostly mix drinks bit the Bloody Mary is legit - New Yorkers wouldn't have it any other way

    Because sometimes, you need a good sandwich right on the banks of the Hudson River.

    The specialty burger is a thing of beauty – a half pound of charred pink flesh with a bandolier of applewood-smoked bacon, a mantling of aged cheddar, and flavorful sautéed onions. Read more

    Gorgeous setting and STRONG frozen drinks. On the other hand, food is pretty terrible, and they use plastic dishes/cups, making environmentalists everywhere sob.

    The service is incredibly poor. The manager was beyond rude. Instead of taking responsibility for an unreasonable amount of time to close a tab, they blamed me. Go elsewhere

    Don't try to charge your phone anywhere. They're "not allowed" to let you plug it in. Dumb!
