If you're looking for a long walk, with a Hudson River view, with a casual dinner and drink along the river, I recommend walking the length of Riverside Park South, from West 59th Street at the river to The West 79th Street Boat House Café. They do not take reservations, but the wait is not long at sunset, as crowds thicken, inside and at on the terrace, later on in the evening. Tonight, I chose a French white wine by the glass and a grilled chicken salad of kale, hearts of palm, red onions, with lemon vinaigrette dressing, plus a whole grain roll. I waited extra time, just for the fantastic view of the sun setting on the horizon. Returning, for the full value of the 40-block walk, I rested at the 70th Street Pier, with starry views of the Upper West Side, New Jersey cliffs, and the George Washington Bridge. Street lamps and flowery shrubs line the pathways. The West 79th Street Boat House Café is open March through October.
