PLAN DATE: THURS / JUNE 13
It’s as simple as smooth summer jazz by the river, and at Pier 84 in Hudson River Park, you and your love can stretch out on the grass, sit close and take it in. With a special performance from spectacular contemporary jazz singer Robin Barnes from New Orleans, you’ll both be swayed and seduced by both the crooning music, and the beauty of a summer evening spent taking the sights and the sounds in.
This warm, compact American eatery specializes in brick oven cuisine that’s locally and ethically sourced, so you know whatever you dine on will be both authentically delicious and wholesome. The homey, simple cooking here goes a long way in its unfussy and well-executed straightforwardness, with a menu that’s updated seasonally and includes wonderful things like meatloaf, wood-fired mac n’ cheese, apple, raspberry & sunchoke salad, beet-filled red ravioli, and molasses and bourbon bbq pork ribs. It’s the kind of down to earth food that’s perfect for summer, and perfect for a post-jazz treat.
