The Rooftop at Pier 17
89 South St., Lower Manhattan
COVID-19 update: Open for pickup, delivery, and incredible outdoor dining. For an evening that feels almost normal, Pier 17 has socially distant fun down. Dinner and drinks are served in individual winterized cabins complete with air purifiers and expansive city views. The cocktails are especially notable, muddled and mixed by Dante’s bartenders (Dante was named one of the best bars in the world back in 2019), with both hot and chilled options. Foodwise, expect New American best-ofs, like truffled grilled cheese, lobster pasta, and buttermilk fried chicken.
