Dine “Out” on Hudson River Views

THE VIEW FROM HAVEN IN EDGEWATER, NJ

THE VIEW FROM HAVEN IN EDGEWATER, NJ

There’s something so relaxing about eating outdoors in the summertime — almost like a mini-vacation for a few hours. Thankfully, Gold Cast North has scores of outdoor dining spaces sought after in these balmy months.

They come in many shapes and sizes — from a few sidewalk tables to elaborate patios. Here are some suggestions for dining al fresco with great views. 

Face north to see the George Washington Bridge or south for a peek at the Empire State Building. Dine at sunset to watch the sun turn the Upper West Side a reddish hue, then linger after dark to gaze at the sparkling skyline. Here are four options along River Road in Edgewater, in order of formality.

ORAMA

Where: 595 River Road, 201-945-2020

The space: Stunning views from a waterside patio that can seat 60; a separate, smaller second-floor balcony, set just outside the dining room, sets you above the water.

The cuisine: Modern American with global influences and two separate menus — a less-expensive lounge menu available on the patio and a much pricier full dinner menu available on both the patio and the balcony.

MAVI MEZE GRILL

Where: 725 River Road, 201-941-0066

The space: A rustic covered patio with the waves of the Hudson crashing beneath your feet.

PIER 115 BAR AND GRILL

Where: 115 River Road, Edgewater, 201-313-2155
