Where to Eat and Drink in NYC Over Labor Day Weekend

A masterplan for the Labor Day food adventure—or bender—of your dreams.


If you're not leaving town for some last-ditch shenanigans this weekend, you're in for a special treat. Not only is Labor Day Weekend one of the last, comparatively tranquil warm-weather weekends in the city, it's also a great time to enjoy some of your favorite outdoor haunts before the city descends into a pit of exhausting autumn darkness and it's impossible to eat anywhere without reserving two weeks ahead.

From beachside burgers and beers to a quiet date at one of our favorite new restaurants, we're here to remind you that if you're in town this weekend, you're in luck.

Hamptons, where? Yeah, we thought so.
