Battery Gardens Photo
Physically, this is an outward-looking restaurant. Good sightlines abound thanks to two patios with metal-mesh tables stepping down towards the water, and the milky-white dining room’s expansive floor-to-ceiling window. Framed on one side by the Staten Island ferry terminal and the Cruise Line dock on the other, Battery Gardens delivers an uninterrupted view of boats in action and photo-ready shots of the Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. The menu tries to look outward as well by giving American dishes smart sauces and garnishes. But each dish has its drawbacks as well. Vegetables look pretty but are dry, unseasoned, or questionably fresh. The little disappointments add up: flat soda, acrid espresso, bland rolls. But at least the cheesecake, a creamy, nearly crustless cylinder topped with a blueberry compote, ends any meal on an up note.
