Fun time lunch idea:

Smorgasburg is located right by Tribeca Sailing. Smorgasburg is the largest weekly open-air food market in America, attracting thousands of people to Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Jersey City. This year’s Smorgasburg schedule will be as follows: World Trade Center at 185 Greenwich Street will host 20 vendors on Fridays from 11am-7pm.

Captain David’s favorite place for drinks and food:

Manhatta: Skip the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock and The Edge and visit Manhatta for drinks and a FANTASTIC view. Close to Tribeca Sailing on 28 Liberty Street. Walk in for drinks or make reservations for dinner, try to sit at the chefs table if you can. This is an experience you will not forget and one of New York’s best.

Hudson Eats: Upstairs from Le’District inside Brookfield Place
High end food court with many delectable choices. I just love Blue Ribbon Sushi.

Liberty Place: On the waterfront of Brookfield Place. Brasserie with a wonderful water side location. Food is good but high priced for the quality. Great place for a drink.
