This Floating Restaurant In New York Is Such A Unique Place To Dine
When the weather is warm here in New York and the sun is out shining, there’s nothing like enjoying some wonderful outdoor dining. Oftentimes we like to mention our favorite waterfront spots, whether it be by a lake or out along the ocean, but what if we told you there was a place where you could actually dine
on the water? Bringing you onto a ship with a history that will leave you completely fascinated, see why this one floating restaurant is the most unique place to dine.
After serving over 30-years off Cape Fear in North Carolina and actually being sunken underwater for several years, today the historic Frying Pan ship is now docked here in New York.
Located at Pier 66 on the Hudson River, the Frying Pan is one of only 13 surviving American lightships out of the nearly 100 that were built over the course of history. Whoa!
As you walk out onto the water, you'll quickly take note that this isn't your average pier - decorated in greenery and even a historic locomotive.
Giving you a variety of places to actually dine on the water, visitors can choose to step foot onto the Frying Pan...
...Or further explore the pier and get a look at the large barge known as Pier 66 Bar and Grill!
Whether you dine on the ship or set up shop on the barge, you can find delicious mouthwatering menus wherever you go on Pier 66.
From Cheesy Risotto Balls and Mahi Mahi Tacos to Barge Burgers and Cape Cod Lobster Rolls - the food is too good to pass up!
Open during New York's warmest months, over the years since docking on the Hudson, the Frying Pan has become known as a premier spot to enjoy sunsets along the riverfront.
As many shaded areas as there are at Pier 66, you'll still find yourself eyeing the bar.
With delicious drinks that have become well-known menu items, this is one place where you won't ever go thirsty.
If you're ready for a unique dining experience that allows you to explore a fascinating piece of history, step aboard the Frying Pan to enjoy an unforgettable maritime outing.
