Surf Bar
Surfing memorabilia, sand-covered floors and the way-laid-back staff can bring a little endless summer to the gloomiest day. A full menu includes clam chowder and fresh fish prepared five ways (inspired by the world’s five sweetest surf spots): The Fijian, with coconut- and-lime sauce, is worth a ride on the L.. If you drop in to get the local surf forecast (we are an island people, after all), chill out with a “tiki” cocktail like the Coconut Kiss (rum, creme de cacao and coconut cream), served in appropriately kitschy glassware (bikini mug anyone?).

Even though I grew up on Long Island, I've always kind of hated the beach... largely due to my hatred of sand. Turns out though, when you throw sand in a bar, I'm in love (what can I say, I'm a sucker for a good theme bar and some kitschy novelty touches). Surf Bar is an awesome getaway from our beloved concrete city without the trek of actually getting away (Rockaway Beach is cool and all... but over an hour subway ride...). The indoor portion has a cool tiki vibe, shrunken heads, sand and all, while the outside is a chill, quiet patio. I love the fish tacos here and the tropical drinks. This is an awesome spot.
