Grand Banks (Closed for the Season)
Pier 25, Hudson River Park
(at Harrison)
American (New)
More casual than fancy

The raw bar (and more) on the Sherman Zwicker schooner docked at Pier 25 is magical. If you can’t score a reservation, you’ll probably have to wait in line for a seat at the main circular bar, smaller oyster bar, or the tables along each side. The boat rocks quite a bit, which you may or may not enjoy. The menu is small but the food is good, and the bar says off-menu drinks are not allowed. The service is warm, with zero of the attitude you might fear from a place with this much style. (P.S. Ignore the map above; Grand Banks is at the end of Pier 25, at Harrison Street.) Note: Closed for the season; reopens in spring of 2018.
