What to Eat at Water Taxi Beach

Opening at South Street Seaport this weekend


Water Taxi Beach opens its South Street Seaport location this weekend, and that’s just awesome. Well, except for the fact that the beach is displacing the Spiegeltent for at least the next two years — that’s kind of a bummer. But hey, it’s a done deal — the sand will soon be dumped and the miniature golf course, picnic tables, Ping-Pong table, and skee-ball machines will be in place by Saturday at 10 p.m., when former Studio 54 D.J. Nick Siano will be turning the mother out. Tickets are $20, but tell them Murray sent you and you’re in for $5. The preview party ends at 2 a.m., and then the beach fully opens on May 30. Hours will be 11 a.m. till 10 p.m. (till 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). Is there a corn dog on the menu? You bet there is! Or at least something closely resembling it — a tortilla-wrapped Stahl-Meyer. There may also be a fish taco. Here’s the menu as it now stands.
