A short distance from the One Manhattan Square condos lies a bounty of beautiful waterside establishments at Pier 17. Whether it’s lunch overlooking the East River, after-work cocktails, or somewhere for a fancy dinner date, Pier 17 has it all.
New Yorkers flock to Dante for various reasons: some to sip the upside-down Dirty Gibsons, others to savor (while watching the boats go by on the river) an espresso martini made with fresh-brewed coffee. For our money, it’s all about Dante’s Negroni Bar, especially now that the crisper weather brings the likes of the chocolate negroni (mixed with creme de cacao and chocolate bitters) and the life-affirming Mezcalito that sings with hibiscus-infused mezcal and Cherry Heering. Why can’t it be cold in New York year-round?
Channeling luxe maritime vibes, Carne Mare sports dark wood-paneled walls, glowing lanterns, and views of the marina out front that’ll set any ocean lover’s heart a-racing. Then there’s the cuisine: fine seafood is a given, of course, from the jumbo Gulf shrimp cocktail to the salt-baked black sea bass cooked in lemon leaves. But the “carne” is in the name for a reason, and this shipshape joint also serves up some of the finest Wagyu steaks this side of Japan. Whoever your date is, they’re one lucky person.
Malibu Farm New York
It’s difficult to stay away from this vibrant waterside venue, what with the various temptations it lures you with: “Sunset Hour” drinks deals every Monday to Thursday, tacos and tequila for $30 on a Tuesday, the weekend brunch with a hot skillet coconut French toast to die for. If none of that has reeled you in, in the colder months, Malibu Farm also dishes up a mean spiced cider and mulled wine—best enjoyed gazing out over the Brooklyn Bridge twinkling at night.
When you’re in the hands of David Chang and the Momofuku team, you know you’ll eat well, and the Korean-American Ssäm Bar is most certainly an embarrassment of mouthwatering riches. The Ssäm Set menu, for instance, is a culinary adventure that whisks your taste buds from prawns in ‘nduja butter to soy-glazed short rib and passion fruit sherbet. Especially for the fall, the restaurant is laying on a porchetta feast—think sausage-stuffed pork belly, grilled rapini, and confit fingerling sweet potatoes with chili, honey, and black truffle.
