Any recommendations for casual spots fitting this description (other than Boat Basin, of course)? Open to any cuisine, especially Japanese or Thai. Many thanks.

  1. there is the Pier I Cafe on the Hudson @ 70th St. It is very informal but lovely. Sort of a grown up boat basin. You can sit outside at Fred's which is casual American. Haru has outdoor seating as well. Most of the spots on Amsterdam & Columbus have outside seating when the weather is nice.

    1. There is a Haru on Amsterdam (between 80th - 81st) with a nice outdoor area.

      1. Isabella's on columbus and 77th is a enjoyable place for an outdoor lunch.

          1. Bar Boulad, and the others next to it, have outdoor space (not sure that it/they could be fairly described as "casual" though.
