You may know Industry Kitchen as the place with a $2000 pizza on the menu, but unless you desperately want to eat golden leaves, you should know this spot for its outdoor seating situation. It’s on the East River near the South Street Seaport, and has a lot of tables next to the running path with great views of the river and Brooklyn. If you do want some food, the thin-crust pizzas are actually pretty good, like the $16 margherita pie that’s more than enough for one person.
