Sunset views at Baylander Steel Beach in Harlem.

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:

Baylander Steel Beach

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.

Sofrito on the Hudson

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.

The Hudson

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.
