Popular Upper West Side outdoor dining spot reopens for spring

UPPER WEST SIDE, NY – In a win for those who love warm weather, eating outdoors and views of the Hudson River – Ellington in the Park reopens in Riverside Park on Monday.

This will be the seventh consecutive year that the establishment has been serving customers from wooden benches in the park near West 105th Street.

The WestSideRag was the first publication to report on the reopening.

Ellington in the Park replaced the former Hudson Beach Cafe. It features an upper level bar made from a repurposed shipping container and a lower level chill out area where you can also order food and drinks while playing volleyball, football or sliding on the rings.

“Perfect for a summer drink or dinner,” Ellington writes on her website.

Its menu features casual classics including pretzel bites, quesadillas, hot dogs, fish tacos, buffalo wings, chicken tenders, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, fries and more.

Ellington in the Park also offers an extensive children’s menu.

In terms of adult drinks, there’s draft beer, wine, and 16-ounce cocktails that include margaritas, Aperol spritzes, and sangria.

The owner of the Riverside Park property also owns The Ellington at 2745 Broadway (near West 105th Street).

The outdoor site is expected to remain open until November.
