If you're looking to make the most of a perfect weather day, head to Long Island City for some tacos and drinks. First, go to Top Quality, a lively restaurant with a cafe and cocktail lounge. They also have a large yard where you can dine outside at their pink picnic tables under big beachy blue and white striped umbrellas. Their tacos are assemble-yourself, with fillings like lamb barbacoa and grilled halloumi cheese—perfect for sharing. They have a marg, but they also have some cocktails with an Asian twist like spicy lemongrass mezcal mule and frozen pandan and Thai lime leaf pina colada.

Continue the day drinking at Anable Basin Sailing Bar & Grill. The menu is simple, but the real star is the breathtaking panoramic views of the water and the New York City skyline. So grab a drink from the bar (it's cash-only so be sure to hit up the ATM beforehand), and make your way to the picnic tables outdoors, where you'll have a waterfront spot and the ability people watch (and pup watch, since it's dog-friendly).
