Pre-Ferry Lunch - Martha's Vineyard Ferry - Pier E35 & FDR

Taking the ferry to Martha's Vineyard over Labor Day weekend. Ferry departs at 3 pm from E35 & FDR. Looking for a good, casual lunch and some drinks beforehand. Doesn't need to be at that exact location, but would probably like to stay on the East Side around Midtown so I can take a cab over and not be too rushed. The only places I can think of are PJ Clarke's and the Water Club -- neither of which get me too jazzed. I must be able to do better than that! Please advise.

      Riverpark might be a little on the "fancy" side for that afertnoon. I'd like to check it out at some point. I enjoy Colicchio & Sons.

        The outdoor space is nice, less fancy than indoors.

    2. Salvation taco isn't far, or for pub food waterfront ale house.

        Waterfront Ale sounds more like what I'm looking for. How are their burgers?

          I love their veggie burger (no meat for me) but i'd say 7/10 people there order the regular burger, very neighborhood-y place with a bunch of "regulars".

      2. 2d avenue deli
        33rd and 3rd.
