With their 1858 landscaping plan under construction, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux began adding architectural features to their Park design. Around 1874, Vaux designed a two-story boathouse at the eastern end of the Lake. Here visitors could purchase refreshments, take boat rides, and watch other boats. After this wooden Victorian structure with sloping mansard roof burned down, the current Loeb Boathouse took its place in the 1950s. Today at the New York Boathouse visitors can enjoy a meal in any season, with overhead heating helping to extend as long as possible the pleasure of dining on the deck overlooking the Lake. Come visit a New York legend!

"Had lunch in Central Park at the Boat House on a glorious sunny winter afternoon. Had a table overlooking the lake- only negative was that the lake was frozen, so no row boating after lunch!! Service was very good- server made recommendations which were fabulous. Food well prepared and presented. All dishes had distinct flavors. Would recommend to anyone that they have a dining experience at the Boat House!!"

Antibes Bistro was designed with a pleasant and warm atmosphere in mind. The colors and lighting create an under-the-radar ambiance where you will find gourmet food in a casual setting.<br><br>Antibes offers a variety of fresh seasonal dishes accompanied by a selection of exceptionally paired wines and specialty cocktails. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy, while the service is efficient and friendly.

"Very enjoyable dining experience. Service was very good, menu selection somewhat limited, but all dishes very flavorful! We were entertained by a trio of musicians who were very good. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to the Lower Eastside!"

"Fabulous dining experience on the Upper Eastside. Great selection of everything mussels!! Dishes were well prepared, all had very distinct flavors. Service was good- kitchen a bit slow, but it was a Saturday night and the drinks were good."

Stop by Antico Forno for a great meal in an atmosphere that is casual and relaxed with delicious food, of course, but also prices that are reasonable.
