Summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind…with an ice-cold frozen cocktail and a no-utensils-necessary bite. Loosen that belt buckle, because our NYC summer bucket list is jam-packed with easy-breezy eating and drinking, from fresh new lobster rolls to a wackadoo waffle, madcap ice-cream cones to heaps of stellar barbecue. That should keep you plenty busy until Labor Day.
