Legit BBQ and seafood with silly city views
Finally giving you a reason to go to Roosevelt Island aside from, um... the smallpox hospital ruins?... The underground, vacuum-powered garbage disposal system?... What about FDR? Is he there?... is Pier NYC, a BBQ/seafood haven with ridiculous skyline views that's just 150ft from the F train, and one of literally 10 Roosevelt Island restaurants, two of which are Subways.

The Seafood: Former Per Se man David Santos is chasing his lifelong dream of working somewhere dinner costs less than $4500, and has equipped the "Santos seafood shack" menu with oysters, tomato & lobster salad w/ smoked paprika oil, plus sandos including the charred-scallion-adorned Rock Shrimp Roll
The Rest: Allycakes desserts include Mudslide cookies and red velvet whoopie pies, while those with a booze tooth can grab frozen margs and daiquiris, plus wine and beers including an IPA that's "yet to be determined", just like other reasons to go to Roosevelt Island.
