Via AM New York:
When news of Grand Banks first hit, excitement levels were off the charts. Cocktails and oysters, on a 1940's fishing boat in the Hudson River? Fears of a Frying Pan-style scene dissipated too, when we learned Mark Firth (Diner, Marlow & Sons, Romans) was involved. Brooklyn charm/ hipness on a boat! And the only disappointment ended up being the popularity of Grand Banks. It was hard to get a spot, but if you did, blissssss. Did we mention it's a "social business" in collaboration with the non profit Maritime Foundation? Yeah, they want to support the seas that give us delicious bounty! The ship will set sail (it will open for business again) come spring.
