The seventh location of California coast tourist magnet Malibu Farm is now open in New York City.

The restaurant, located here on Pier 17 at 89 South St., is known on the West Coast for its expansive waterside views and healthy-leaning American food that draws in many visitors. Here, seating is a mixture of indoor and outdoor that looks out upon the Brooklyn Bridge and beyond.

The New York version of the menu from owner Helene Henderson channels California with organic produce, grass-fed beef and local fish in dishes like cauliflower crust pizza, a chicken ricotta burger, and a vegan chop salad with kale, romaine, butternut squash, purple beet, avocado, garbanzo beans, and red wine vinaigrette. It’s only open for lunch for now, and the full menu is below.

Drinks are similarly focused on freshness, with organic agaves, freshly squeezed juices, and local produce. Cocktails include a watermelon- and cucumber-infused vodka with agave, fresh watermelon juice, and lime, as well as one with toasted coconut rum, coconut agave, and fresh pineapple juice.

The 6,000-square-foot space mixes several materials in the design, including wood, brass, bronze, leather, stone, and concrete for a slightly industrial, though warm space.

Since opening in Malibu, the restaurant has since spread to Miami, Mexico, and four other locations. Malibu Farm is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
