Anything of interest in Battery Park??????
I often stay in this part of the city because of a
company appartment. Most nights I make the trek to
some old and some new haunts. Ocassionally I would lke
to stay in Battery Park for a nice dinner and then
maybe some drinks. Please help!!!
Yes, I think it's called An American Place (or An
American . . . something). It's a fairly new
restaurant next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal
in the park itself. I haven't tried it but I've been
told it's pretty good and that they serve stone crab
claws which makes me want to pay a visit.
If you can charge it to your company, check out the
Hudson River Club in Battery Park City. Great food, but
expensive. Cooking celeb Waldy Maloof was the chef
there for a while. Great weekend brunch, too, with
endless food and sunny views of the harbor.
Also, a short walk to Harrison St. in Tribeca brings
you to Yaffa (there are 2 of them a couple of doors
apart--I prefer the smaller one in the middle of the
block over the one on the corner). Service can be, um,
leisurely, but the price and surroundings are right.

fern--actually, footer links ARE permitted according to our rules and guidelines.
We take a really really strict approach to spam and
especially to commercial messages posing as testimonials. But it's standard
'Net practice to allow footer "sigs" containing the
URL of the poster's personal or biz site, and we allow it here as well
(unless, of course, the message is merely an excuse
to provide the link, in which case we nuke it...such was clearly not the case with Peter's message.
