Description:

With one of the more picturesque settings along the Hudson River -- facing the northern Palisades with views from Manhattan to the Tappan Zee Bridge and beyond -- Red Hat on the River is an ideal spot for warm-weather dining. Umbrella shaded tables are near the water, and there's a fabulous rooftop cocktail lounge. The restaurant is housed in a century-old brick building with soaring ceilings and two-story, white-framed windows. A local assemblage is often gathered at the horseshoe-shaped bar.

The classic bistro fare -- with some contemporary twists -- is well-turned out, from moules frites, braised short ribs with turnip purée and seared sea scallops with a red wine and endive marmalade. Earnest servers keep cool under often trying conditions. -Bryan Miller
