So we stumbled across this place while visiting the city last weekend, and it was nice out, so we took a table. Service was slow, and unenthused. Everything was starchy and served on plastic. The atmosphere was great though, being outside near the water, people...More

District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
