Riverside Park: Relax or Get Active on the Upper West Side

September 25, 2015 2:56 pm

Central Park's New York City's backyard, but New York's got many other great parks, too. For instance: Riverside Park, a space stretching from 59th Street to 155th Street along the Hudson River, all not far from The Aldyn. Riverside Park's vast expanse encompasses quite a few interesting things to do and see.

Cyclists, runners, and those out for a stroll can enjoy Riverside Park's gorgeous promenade. Gardens are situated along the space, and the park's got other enticing destinations like its Cherry Walk. Monuments, fountains, a bird sanctuary, and a fishing pier also draw visitors. Tennis courts, baseball fields, playgrounds, and dog runs bring visitors who'd like to get active.

You can find out all about the park's amenities by visiting the Riverside Park website!

Creative Mediterranean Food at Boulud Sud

September 17, 2015 2:43 pm

Upper West Siders are near a huge number of world-class restaurants, and Boulud might be one of the most inventive. It was established by Chef Daniel Boulud and its food bears the influences of Mediterranean cuisines. Of course, the Mediterranean's a big place, and the cuisines include French fare, Italian food, and even North African cuisine. Boulud Sud's current dinner menu features dishes like Lemon-Saffron Linguini with crab and sea urchin butter, Morrocan Chicken Tagine, and Seared Sea Bass with fennel, figs, and almond.

Boulud Sud has a multi-course tasting menu, too, plus a three-course "Pre-Theater" dinner perfect as a prelude to a visit to Lincoln Center. There's a full list of wines, plus a bar and lounge space where you can enjoy a cocktail near The Aldyn.

If you'd like to find out more or make reservations, visit Boulud Sud's website!

The Sensous Bean: An Upper West Side Coffee Spot

September 10, 2015 2:33 pm

"A tiny gem of a coffee shop": so says one Yelp reviewer of The Senusous Bean, an Upper West Side cafe that's just a short trip from The Aldyn. Here you can find a fine cup of coffee or a hand-crafted espresso drink, and you can also find coffee beans imported from all over the world. The staff are coffee experts, and they're happy to answer even the most arcane questions about it.

Along with the beans, the shop has a selection of coffee gear, teas, snacks, and other tasty stuff. If you prefer a particular coffee style, they can recommend the perfect beans, and they can give you tips on brewing coffee, too!

If you'd like to stop by, note that this is a small space, and it's not the kind of place where you can linger inside with a book or an iPad. There's some seating out front, though, and you're also just steps away from Central Park!
