Governors Island is a culinary destination! See some of our delicious food and beverage vendors below, with more to be announced soon.
Picnicking on Governors Island
Visitors to Governors Island are welcome to bring their own food. There are plenty of shaded green spaces on the Island that are perfect for laying a blanket on the grass, or Adirondack chairs and picnic tables for those who would prefer them. Visitors are not permitted to bring alcohol, but it can be purchased and consumed in specific areas. Grilling is not allowed except at grilling stations available by permit, which will be available for the 2021 season soon. Please note that grilling stations, along with the rest of the Island, are now closed for the season, reopening May 1, 2021.
