West 79th Street Boat Basin Café

Cafe in Upper West Side & Central Park

New ownership and an award-winning Culinary Institute of America chef are revitalizing this perennially popular waterside spot. The Robert Moses–era structure, with an elegant colonnade opening onto an outdoor rotunda, provides great marina and Hudson River views. Always deservedly popular for sunset drinks, the menu of salads, sandwiches, seafood and innovative NYC 'street food' is now another drawing card.
