The BOAT BASIN CAFÉ is operated by the folks behind the defunct O'Neal's Balloon, once the most popular restaurant on the Upper West Side. The view from the porticoed stone porch—which resembles a Roman ruin—looks across the Hudson River to the Jersey Palisades, and the burger is char-grilled, well-dressed, and just the right size.
