Cargo’s facade is repainted with a new design every few months by a local artist, but the views of Manhattan and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge are permanently gorgeous. Inside, writers, musicians and after-work solace-seekers enjoy the jukebox and the juicy burgers. Midweek, there’s live music in the back room.
