Johnny’s Reef

​​"[City Island] is even better than a New England fishing village. I used to drive my kids to Johnny’s Reef Restaurant, which is all the way out on the point. We would order baskets of fried clams and eat them outside on the picnic tables overlooking the water. I still go when I can. It’s a great escape without leaving the city.”

-Mayor Mike Bloomberg (NY Post)
