A classic summertime party spot, the Boat Basin Café has been one of the Upper West Side’s key warm-weather destinations for decades. This open-air restaurant has the feel of an ongoing backyard barbecue—babies and leashed dogs are welcome, and the menu is heavy on Americana basics like burgers and wings, to be enjoyed while taking in a Hudson River sunset on the restaurant’s massive patio.
