Grab A Bite

Mottley Kitchenette is the place for your go-to coffee order. Don’t miss the chance to try their incredible pastries made fresh every day. The cinnamon croissant and maple-glazed cruller are especially excellent.  Bronx Brewery and their oasis of a backyard is a must-visit. Their beer has gone worldwide at this point, but now you’re at the source and get to pair it with elevated bar food and inventive empanadas by Empanology.

Hudson Smokehouse turns out competition-ready barbecue. Monte’s Brick Oven has wood-fired pizzas and pastas. Bricks & Hops has a Latin-inflected menu of bar bites.

In the mood for sushi? Ceetay’s got you covered. You might feel like what you need is a little bit more of a send-off to your day, in which case, stop by Beatstro for a menu that spans Latin cuisine and soul food served in a clubby atmosphere.
