Between the bustling streets and high-powered jobs, it is easy to forget that when you're living in Manhattan, you are living on an island. While the concrete jungle may not feel like a tropical vacation, the waterfront dining options in the city are enough to make anyone feel like they are on a trip for one night. So take the evening off, get off the pavement, and enjoy the food (and views) at these waterfront spots.
