HELL’S KITCHEN — A floating seafood lounge is joining lobster boat North River Lobster Company on the Hudson River.
Like the lobster eatery, which is the “largest floating lobster shack in New York City,” Fish Bar will set sail on the river a few times each day when it isn’t docked at the pier, the release said.
Along with salads and starters, the restaurant will serve an “overture of shared plates,” including Plymouth Rock oysters in a cornmeal crust with sriracha lime butter for $17, a black truffle burrata with heirloom tomato and balsamic glaze for $19 and octopus with red pepper and capers in a red wine reduction for $24.
Entrees will range in price from $19 for a plate of rustic roasted vegetables to $62 for Dover sole with herb meunière, the restaurant’s menu shows.
In addition to its seafood offerings, Fish Bar will offer more than 20 craft beers and 26 champagnes, along with boutique wines and “farm to cocktail” drinks.
The yacht that houses the lounge has an outdoor deck “for taking in sunsets and city views,” and an interior with a “contemporary nautical atmosphere,” the release said.
“We have been eagerly awaiting the launch of our second floating restaurant concept and are confident that this new venue will quickly earn its title as one of the best urban rooftops and waterfront social settings in Manhattan, New York Cruise Lines CEO Daniel Boockvar said in a statement.
