Where to Wine and Dine along the High Line
The crown jewel of Chelsea, the High Line Park has so much to see and do while strolling the path up to West 30th Street. While you’re there, why not take a break at one of these culinary hot spots in the area picked by our local neighborhood experts, our downtown agents.
A fan favorite, this restaurant and outdoor lounge located on Pier 66 is more than meets the eye. A repurposed light-house ship right on the Hudson offers relaxing views of boats cruising up and down the river. The historic ship built in 1929 is rumored to have spent a few years at the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay before being turned into an edgy, nautical themed bar and restaurant. Order an ice cold beer and some delectable little neck clams, and you’ll be a regular.
Frying Panis located at Pier 66 at 26th Street and the West Side Highway.
Fitting for a restaurant along a public park to house a rainforest like lush garden setting. The Park is notoriously spacious, making it a great spot if you’re travelling with an entourage. The menu offers variety which includes delicious wood-oven pizza to artisan burgers to gnocchi with arugula and pancetta.
The Park is located at 118 Tenth Ave., New York, NY 10011 (near W.17th St)
Biergarten at The Standard Hotel
This authentic German biergarten in André Balazs’s Standard Hotel offers a fun and boisterous experience as you step off the High Line. Designed to offer communal seating for 200 people, the line on a sunny weekend afternoon wraps around the corner. 3 full flavored beers are offered, in addition to a full bar. Snack on bratwurst and pretzels while you take it all in.
The Standard Biergarten is located at 848 Washington St., New York, NY 10014 (near W.13th St)
Trestle on Tenth
Swiss food done impeccably is what you’ll find here. Nestled in a ideal location, the menu is a variety of pork, meat and cheese centric dishes and is very reasonably priced. The décor is charming and you’re surrounded by charming exposed brick walls. It’s more than a place to take a break from your stroll along the high line, it’s a true foodie destination. The open-faced pork sandwich, dripping with sauerkraut and melted Fontina cheese is a fan favorite.
Trestle on Tenth is located at 242 Tenth Ave., New York, NY 10001 (at W.24th St)
