Summer in New York City

Is there a general thread on what to eat in New York in the summer? I tried searching, but 'summer' is a problematic search term...

Summer is my least favourite season, especially for dining. It's hot and humid, so I can't / won't wear a suit, and my appetite isn't so keen on haute cuisine in warm weather anyhow. My favourite more casual cuisine [French bistro] is also too heavy for summer.

I'm curious, however, what experienced 'hounds would recommend. To take advantage of the season, I'd probably want to try lighter, fresher food. Also, are there any seasonal offerings [pop-ups, markets, special dishes] that I should take note of?

I know nothing about Yunnan, but this sort of thing looks promising:

By the way, are there any good Vietnamese restaurants in Manhattan?

The warmer months might also provide an excuse for me to finally visit Empellón...
