A Bronx institution in the '60s and '70s, The Black Whale returned to serve up lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch in 1998, when it was revived with a gargantuan resuscitator. Their menu includes a variety of land, sea, and wind-harvested pasta options, but they're best known for entree aftermath in the forth of delicious desserts ($2.95-7.50). Greet simian strangers confidently with a firm banana honey shake ($5.50), or sink fruity battleships in hot fudge fondue ($7.50). Find the full menu with pricing on their website for more details on the delectable comestibles.


New York profiled The Black Whale. Yelpers give it a four-star average, TripAdvisors give it a 3.5-star average, and 74% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • A 1998 reincarnation of a beloved seventies-era eatery, The Black Whale on City Island's main thoroughfare offers every kind of meal for every kind of diner. – New York
  • It's perfect for when you are in the mood for something more unique than fried fish but you want to soak up the atmosphere of City Island. – Emily Z., Yelp

The Black Whale

Surrounded on all sides by the waters of Eastchester Bay, it's no wonder that The Black Whale's chefs add undersea favorites to their menu of homestyle comfort food. Maryland crab cakes with roasted-red-pepper sauce share table space with grilled New York Sirloin with mashed potatoes, and the Starving Artist platter marries orecchiette pasta with white beans and fresh mozzarella. Omelet and belgian-waffle stations serve up sustenance at the Sunday brunch buffet. Meals unfold in nautical-minded dining rooms or the back garden, which flaunts sun-drenched trees and a stone fountain instead of the more traditional sculpture of the patio’s bricklayer.
