The Daily Shortlist December 9
How do you pass up the chance to hear a guitarist who’s played with the likes of Beck, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and more, as well as having put out a number of his own projects that have run the gamut from blues to bossa nova, in a small club like Rodeo Bar? For good Mediterranean food on the UWS, Seven’s is an excellent choice. Specializing in Pides (stuffed dough), they also serve most of the staple Turkish dishes. Hidden, though well worth the hunt, Shalel Lounge is a romantic spot with a cave-like atmosphere, and an excellent though pricey beer and wine list. Overlooking the water in Riverside Park, the Boat Basin Café is a really beautiful outdoor café with one of the best views of the Hudson River and NJ. You heard me, NJ! The menu is mostly burgers and sandwiches and plenty of BBQ. Best of all, it’s affordable and fun.
