The Best Shopping & Food Options in South Street Seaport and Pier 17

The historic South Street Seaport district was hit hard by Superstorm Sandy just over three months ago. This area of NYC is still in rebuilding mode. While many shops and restaurants are still closed, several have since reopened and the neighborhood is slowly but noticeably getting back to normal. With that in mind, we’d like to highlight some the best shopping and dining options in South Street Seaport and Pier 17 that you can visit today.

Christmas in New York – Pier 17 Mall, 2nd Floor
Other than a few restaurants in the third floor, Pier 17 is open for business. One of our favorite shops in Pier 17 is Christmas in New York where you can get Christmas ornaments and other Christmas themed items all year round.

Tabasco Grill – Pier 17 Mall, 3rd Floor
You can take a break from all the shopping at the Pier 17 food court on the third floor. We suggest trying Tabasco Grill as they make a delicious shrimp taco and a tasty grilled chicken salad.

Made Fresh Daily – 226 Front Street
Made Fresh Daily is a cafe where you can get yummy muffins, sandwiches and salads. It is a great place to pick up breakfast or lunch in area. Next door Jeremy’s Ale House is also open.

Acqua – 21 Peck Slip
Acqua is another great lunch/brunch spot in the neighborhood with a menu made up of mouthwatering Italian specialties, pastas and pizzas.

MarkJoseph Steakhouse – 261 Water St
Looking for a juicy steak in the South Street Seaport area? You can look no further with Mark Joseph Steakhouse. If you go Monday to Friday next week, you can catch the last week of Restaurant Week and enjoy their Filet Mignon with an appetizer and a dessert for only $30.

South Street Seaport Museum – 12 Fulton St
The South Street Seaport Museum has also reopened and it has gone through a lot of changes so we definitely recommend a visit. It is a great showcase of the history and art of New York City.
