Battello is located at the end of a pier, and its view of the Manhattan skyline is one of the best in town. It’s a popular spot for weddings—so popular that their website has an entire page for the days you won’t be able to eat or drink there unless you’re attending one. 

The menu is seafood-focused and on the pricier side for the area: a plate of buttery-smooth scallops costs $46, but portion sizes are decent—the lobster ravioli is a substantial plate of pillowed pasta filled with hearty chunks of Maine lobster. If you’re not trying to spend that kind of cash on a weeknight, go early and grab some snacks at the bar or at one of the outside tables in the summer.
