There is nothing I love more than summer in New York. The heat is sweltering, hair is frizzy, and everyone wants to dine and drink outdoors. The city feels like a new and exciting playground and several outdoor restaurants and rooftop bars open fling open their doors.
The Frying Pan is by far one of my favorite divey spots. It is a restored lightship that dates back to 1929 and is now docked as hangout haven on the Hudson River. Whether you are in the market for a romantic dinner or casual group gathering, the Frying Pan is the ultimate summer spot. The menu is not extensive but the new-American dishes are bursting with flavor. The Culturistas recommend the citrus glazed salmon served with lentils, preserved lemons, and mixed greens. Just be weary that once you board the boat will rock.
