With beautiful patio seating along the East River, Watermark Bar should be the kind of place where you can take large groups for cheap burgers and tall glasses of craft beer after a long day of work. Or, conversely, a romantic spot for a date with elegant seafood and flowers on your table. But Watermark struggles to fit both niches. The overcooked burgers are on the pricey side, and the endless blaring of terrible pop music makes conversation difficult. The most interesting food items are the salmon burger (with roasted red peppers and a tangy malted vinegar tartar sauce) and the Maine lobster roll, though the latter will run you a cool $19. Otherwise, the menu is mostly just variations on a simple burger and a few styles of hot dogs. But with the tall ships to the north, Lady Liberty to the south, and the Brooklyn promenade across the water, there is no doubt that the view here is incredible. So much so that sliding in for a cocktail on a warm summer night isn’t a bad idea. Skip the food, and grab the Spicy Cucumber—tequila, muddled cucumber, and Tabasco—and let a summer evening drift on by.
