    The setting here is spectacular, with panoramic views of the Hudson River, prime sunset views, and bike rentals nearby. The food is better than you’d expect, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Read more

    It makes a great bike destination, and the lobster roll, blackened salmon, and shrimp brochettes are better than they need to be, and cheaper, too. Read more

    You order at the counter, then find a seat and get your food whenever your buzzer buzzes. The system is blessedly uncomplicated, which means everyone can just chill the hell out and focus on the view. Read more
