I’d heard about the Boat Basin Cafe many times since moving to the Upper West Side but I’d had yet to venture over and down.  Until last night that is!  A few of my UWS’er girls and I decided to kick off the Fourth of July weekend with a view… and a drink!  

Well, after the two hour wait (ugh) we sat at a table with a perfect view and noshed on nachos before ordering.  I had the chopped salad with a piece of corn, and a mango mai tai (YUM!).  Everything was really good – though I think it has to be said that Boat Basin is not known for it’s food and though it was good, it was nothing special.  People go there obviously for the spectacular view.  

And Boat Basin is puppy friendly (as per the above picture), so feel free to bring your pooch!  

Boat Basin Cafe is located at 79th Street and West End.  Click here for more information.
