Sprung from humble Long Island City origins, Water Taxi Beach has expanded to increasingly valuable riverside real estate: first South Street Seaport, and now this 20,000-plus-square-foot Governors Island locale. Drinks are similar to those at the other locations, including draft beers and cocktails. The Beach Grill—one of three minirestaurants on the site—sells familiar fare like the Motz Burger; by the end of the month, the Backstage Cafe is expected to open, offering dishes made from local produce, including some grown on the island. Music fans, take note: The beach doubles as a concert venue, with stars like Mos Def and the B-52’s set to perform this summer.
