Standard SeaShack at The Standard Plaza
You know how summertime in New York City doesn’t always feel like the beachy fun break you are craving? Before you rush off to the Hamptons or plan a road trip to satiate your laid-back sun needs (especially on a random Tuesday), you’ve gotta check out The Standard SeaShack!
The Standard, yes, you know it as an "it" place for celebs, offers a seaside striped umbrella clad beachy ambiance without leaving the hustle and bustle of the city. Oh, there are surely perks for staying, let’s call it “beaching in the city”—dare I say it, the food is better! I’m talking awesome lobster rolls, crab cakes, fish and chips that aren’t too greasy, killer fries, and loads more that are sure to hold you over right until you escape the city for real.
Don’t forget dessert! My dad always said there’s a separate part of your stomach for it—LOVED their chocolate covered watermelon sprinkled with sea salt (oh, you sure heard that right)!
PRO TIP. order your favorite dessert (ahem, the chocolate covered sea salt watermelon) to-go, walk the two blocks south to the entrance and enjoy it up on the High Line while people watching on a hot summer day—you’ll thank me later. While you’re at it, remember to snap some pics for the gram, your followers will be drooling for details.
