Features
Great views, Great value, Local haunt, Casual

You have to walk under a bridge and down a winding stone staircase to reach this casual, open-air café and bar on the Hudson, and it feels like a true escape. The sprawling space is split into three sections: a circular alfresco area, a patio overlooking the marina, and a covered section for barbecues, where a boisterous happy hour crowd keeps the space buzzing. American staples like burgers and wings are served with plastic cutlery, easily overlooked thanks to the incredible views of the Palisades and Hudson River, best enjoyed during sunset. Note: seating is for diners only.
