Unless you count eating an energy bar in the Columbia Tennis Center, Indian Road Cafe is the northernmost place to eat in Manhattan. Its location at the very western tip of 218th Street overlooking Spuyten Duyvil Creek and The Bronx makes for an interesting piece of trivia, but this all-day American spot would be worth checking out regardless. The space feels like a ski town tavern, and the menu includes the kind of meat and sauce-heavy dishes you’d want when the city’s crosswalks are under a foot of slush. Sit at the bar during Happy Hour and get the dry-aged burger with chive aioli and cheddar, or come with a group and share the huge portion of mac and cheese.
