Take a quaint New England fishing village, plop it in the Long Island Sound by New York City, and you've got City Island, the Bronx neighborhood known for boating and seafood. While there are no public beaches on City Island, the nautical culture is a huge draw for daytrippers, and visitors should be prepared to fight traffic and crowds during the summer and on holidays. To avoid crowds and waits, head to City Island on a weekday. Use our New York Restaurant search tool to learn more about City Island dining options.

8 Best Mexican Restaurants in NYC

The main culinary appeal of City Island is, of course, seafood. With a yacht club clientele, City Island restaurants tend to be more upscale than other restaurants in the Bronx, but they are not prohibitively expensive. Sammy's Fishbox and its spinoff, Sammy's Shrimp Box, are hot tourist destinations because of their large portions of high quality seafood and moderate prices. For a Japanese spin on City Island's seafood scene, try Ohana Japanese Hibachi Seafood and Steakhouse. The chefs here double as entertainers, preparing your meal at your table with flourish. Non-seafood options on City Island are limited, but locals enjoy The Snug, an Irish Pub, and Lickety Split ice cream parlor. Use our New York Restaurant search tool to browse City Island dining options, read reviews, and sort by price and rating.
