One of the best restaurants in Tribeca isn’t actually in Tribeca, most of the time. Grand Banks docks at Pier 25 and cruises the Hudson River serving oysters, maritime-inspired cocktails and other freshly caught seafood on her historic deck. Slip on your boatshoes, grab your shades and head to the Hudson, this is a perfect way to impress your first mate.
Grand Banks’ menu is built around sustainable, wild-caught fish species and seasonal local produce, with a focus on refining dishes to their simplest and most dynamic forms.
With a mastery of traditional techniques and a history of innovation in contemporary cooking, Executive Chef Kerry Heffernan’s range of skill and depth of experience as a chef, fisherman, and conservationist is unparalleled.
Kerry honed his skills at Montrachet, Le Régence, Restaurant Bouley and Mondrian with Tom Colicchio before landing his first job as Chef de Cuisine at One Fifth Avenue. Kerry later became the Executive Chef of the Westbury Hotel’s famed Polo Restaurant, training ground of such extraordinary talents as Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud. Soon afterward, Kerry opened Union Square Hospitality Group’s Eleven Madison Park as Executive Chef and eventually became partner. Under his leadership, the restaurant received numerous accolades, including a tie with Per Se on Zagat Survey’s “Top 20 Most Popular Restaurants in New York,” The James Beard Foundation’s Award for Outstanding Service in America, and Esquire Magazine’s “Best New Restaurant.”
