Uptown's waterfront dining options keep multiplying, and with outdoor seating the rule in New York right now, they're more attractive than ever.
To help you find them, here's a list of the top spots along the Hudson where you can grab a drink and a bite while taking in superb views of the river, the George Washington Bridge, and beyond.
From south to north:
Manhattanville West Harlem Piers, W 125th Street at the Hudson River
This just-opened restaurant is located on an actual decommissioned U.S. Navy ship moored at the West Harlem Piers. Look for casual pub grub like wings, burgers and sunset-ready cocktails including frosés and Palomas.
Hamilton Heights 679 Riverside Drive (inside Riverbank State Park, entrance at W 145th St)
Enter Harlem's Riverbank State Park to find this festive Latin restaurant—think garlicky mofongo and sangria—with outdoor seating facing the GW Bridge as well as a concession stand directly next to the park's shaded picnic area.
Inwood 348 Dyckman St at the Hudson River
Occupying the old La Marina space in Inwood, this ideally-located waterfront restaurant is now open daily from 1pm-10pm, serving boiled seafood, sandwiches including lobster rolls, and barbecue. Oh, there's sushi, too.
