What to Eat at the Frying Pan, Reopening May 1 (Maybe Sooner!)

By

Were told Pier 66 Maritime, the pleasure barge most of us know as the Frying Pan, reopens May 1. If weather permits, it might even open during the upcoming weekend and/or the next. As for the Frying Pan itself, the city still hasnt granted the lil lightship a new certificate of occupancy, and until that changes, no events can be thrown on or inside the boat. Which is kind of ridiculous, since its been a couple of years since it moved from Pier 63. But whatever, the barge itself is a joyous place to hang out, and additions to the lunch and dinner menu (which follow) are sure to make it even better this year. Hours of operation: Noon to midnight.
