Dine with fantastic views of lower Manhattan at Maritime Parc’s outdoor terrace, enjoying the breeze off the water. Work in the Financial District? No worries, Maritime Parc is a mere 7 minute ferry ride away from the Liberty Landing in Manhattan. Check out their newest lunch menu, featuring a raw bar, a variety of small plates to whet the appetite, and delights such as asparagus pesto, fettucine, farm egg and guanciale – yum! Bonus: if you arrive by boat, they now have vessel service – call and they will deliver your meal directly to your slip.

With a newly redesigned lunch menu, Gente is the perfect place to enjoy lunch on a relaxed Friday afternoon. Order from the a la carte menu, or splurge on the $25 three course prix fixe menu – choice of appetizer, main course such as risotto or pollo piccata, and finish with a scrumptious dessert like tiramisu. Want to eat a bit lighter? There’s also a “Smart Choice” prix fixe for $21 that includes the soup of the day and your choice of artisanal salad topped with ahi tuna, salmon filet, jumbo shrimp or New York strip steak.

Immerse yourself in this tribute to rock&roll, and enjoy a fantastic lunch while you’re there. With a menu featuring such goodies as Frito Pie – if you’ve never had the pleasure, you must try one; chili served over Fritos corn chips, and here they serve it with cheddar cheese and chipotle sour cream, yum! – mini beef corndogs, yo’momma’s meatloaf, tv dinner (which contains fish sticks, tater tots, peas and carrots, and tartar sauce)… the list goes on and on. So many items to choose from, there’s something for everyone at Rockography!
