If you have never heard of City Island, it is the cutest little island off the coast of coast of NYC that overlooks the Long Island Sound. It is full of locally owned seafood restaurants and home to the cutest tiny ice cream shop, Lickety Split! My favorite place for food on City Island is Johnny’s Reef Restaurant. They have a huge patio on the river where you can eat your food!
They also have a bar in the restaurant where you can order all sorts of mixed drinks including the piña colada that I drank today! I am not a huge seafood fan, so I get their chicken tenders, but they have a huge variety of seafood and everyone loves it! The view is amazing and it is a great place to go with family and friends!
It is the family’s favorite place to go out together, especially on a nice day like today. It is on the water so I would advise you wear a coat if it’s windy because it can get chilly! They also have ice cream and milkshakes for dessert that are a big hit!
I definitely recommend visiting Johnny’s. It is a little hidden gem that is well known by the locals. You can’t beat eating a delicious lunch with great friends, overlooking the Long Island Sound.
If you check out City Island, let me know where you eat and what you think of it! I would love to hear about your trip!
Thank you for reading!
