NYC has been enjoying a wonderful Indian summer the last few days. Over the weekend, Central Park was mobbed and people were out and about walking in my five blocks. Another great place to enjoy a beautiful day is the Pier i Cafe, an outdoor cafe located along the Hudson River, in the newly constructed Riverside Park South at west 70th street. It was packed yesterday due to the pure sunshine and 80 degree weather.
Walk along the pier or just relax and enjoy the view…it’s a nice break from the fast-paced city life. The Pier i Cafe offers a casual menu including burgers (sirloin and veggie) , fries, salads, Maine Lobster Roll, desserts, soda, beer/wine and freshly squeezed blueberry lemonade. And, enjoy the coffee bar in the morning for lattes, coffee or espresso. There is lots of seating at tables with umbrellas facing the Hudson River.
Months of operation are from May 1st to mid-October (weather permitting), so take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to enjoy the setting before the winter arrives. Check out the website http://www.piericafe.com for more details, including hours of operation and the full menu.
