One of my favorite brunch places is the BOATHOUSE RESTAURANT in Central Park. I took this photo of the restaurant in early September from the Bethesda Fountain.

From -

"Located at the northeastern tip of the Lake, stands the Loeb Boathouse that houses the Boathouse Restaurant, a famous icon of Central Park. Overlooking the Lake it is the perfect place to dine on a relaxing afternoon lunch or romantic dinner in the warmer months.

Many diners prefer the deck where they can sit back and watch the rowboats and occasional gondola drift by on the Lake as they enjoy a salad or refined fish platter.

It is easy to lose oneself in this magical atmosphere and truly forget you are still in the City. Swans and ducks frequently approach the restaurant's deck in search for a friendly handout.

From the restaurant’s seasonal outdoor terrace, you can see Bethesda Terrace in the distance.

Catering is also provided in a large room on the northern wing devoted reserved for private parties and weddings. There is also a small outdoor casual bar that is frequently enjoyed by many.

During the summer months the chatter of dinnerware, glasses and happy voices resonate in the air, as the crowds grow larger and larger. With so many people mingling together, it is definitely the place to dine, enjoy the great view and be seen".
