Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Think of it as Tavern on the Water. A barge has been permanently moored on the East River and its two levels converted into a bar and dining rooms. The view is brilliant, the dress code leans toward Brooks Brothers, the service ranges from leisurely to flat-out slow, and the food is usually worth the wait. Oysters might include bluepoints, Malpeques and Hood Canals. Arctic char on a bed of beans is paired with leeks. Lobsters are cracked tableside and can be steamed, grilled or stuffed –with crabmeat. You’ll start on a surprisingly delightful note: The still-warm bread basket holds freshly baked corn-bread rolls, scones and olive-speckled slices of bread.
