Red Hat on the River. The cozy French bistro formerly on Main Street is getting bigger, and a lot closer to the Hudson. Forty feet to be precise. The new Red Hat will feature two levels, seating for 60 on a front patio, and a roof top lounge by next spring. Owner Jim Parker hopes to be serving his signature hanger steaks, mussels, duck and frisee aux lardons salad by the second week in October. 1 Bridge St., 914-591-5888. www.redhatbistro.com.
