Only at the Waterfront can you enjoy a glass of port while fetching free popcorn for your table from a self-serve popper. The doctors, nurses, and doctors-to-be from Bellevue and the NYU Medical Center prescribe the bar's sublime combination of the haute and the down-home—the menu ranges from a grilled vegetable sandwich to a smoked-pork sandwich better known as "the pulled pig." Inoculate yourself with shots of the house spirit, Grandma's Apple Pie vodka, which steeps for at least three weeks before appearing in a glass jar behind the bar, apple rings and all.
