Views of the Statue of Liberty are magnificent from outdoor tables at Battery Park’s Pier A. Up to 2,000 people can jam the ground floor at Oyster House, which gets especially crowded after work and on weekends. Order at the counter; your food will be ferried to your table by the energetic staff. Beer-battered dayboat cod is fresh and crunchy. Blackened swordfish tacos are good too, especially when paired with wine on tap or a cold beer.
