Battello

$$$$

502 Washington Blvd, Jersey City
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

No offense to New Jersey, but even the few spots that are right on the water in Manhattan are just looking out on, well, New Jersey. The waterfront in Jersey City, on the other hand, has unimpeded views of the Manhattan skyline, and no place has a better vantage point than Battello. That makes this Italian-leaning spot popular for private events and business dinners, but if you’re not looking to commit to mushroom-crusted wagyu or $36 scallops, it’s also an impressive place to meet someone for drinks and an excellent burger at the bar.

Celestine feels pretty casual, but this Mediterranean spot is on the water in Dumbo and has excellent views.
