Frying Pan

Why Come Here? It’s a beautiful day and you want to drink with several hundred New Yorkers outside on a (docked) boat

At some point this summer, you’ll probably find yourself at the Frying Pan. And while you’re there, you will run into someone you know. That’s because Frying Pan is one of Manhattan’s most popular outdoor drinking space and for many good reasons. To start, the Frying Pan is a retired lightship that’s permanently docked at Pier 66 on the Hudson (at about 26th Street) which means panoramic views up and down the Hudson (and of course across to New Jersey) in addition to the fact you get to drink on a boat. Combine that with tasty Sangria on tap and a rotating selection of New York State craft beers (try the Capt. Lawrence) and you may wonder: what’s not to love?

The answer, as with many popular bars, is much of the food. But as day turns to night and you’re sipping your fourth glass of sangria, you’ll probably want to consider putting something a little more solid in your stomach. Fortunately if you make the right decisions, you can eat a tasty light meal here. Here are my recommendations:

Old Bay Garlic Fries

Roasted Garlic Hummus 2 Star Dish Good hummus, good olives and a very tasty grilled flat bread. If you want to keep it healthy, this is probably your best option.

Old Bay Garlic Fries 2 Star Dish You’re on a boat, so you logically want to put seafood seasoning on everything. Fortunately on fries, it happens to be delicious.

Lemon-Herb Chicken Wrap 2 Star Dish The flat bread and tzatziki give this a great, light Mediterranean flavor.

Grilled 8 oz Sirloin Burger 2 Star Dish A meaty burger with a good char that won’t let you down if you’re looking for something more substantial.
