A day at The Fulton (89 South Street) — chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s latest culinary marvel at the Seaport — begins at five in the morning, when fishing boats sail out to bring in the catch of the day.
The fresh haul –
is brought back to Pier 17 in time for lunch and dinner when it’s served up in myriad styles inspired by seafood traditions all over the world: sometimes sashimi, other times crispy.
Get a taste –
of this Lower Manhattan culinary gem in the Downtown Alliance’s new video on The Fulton:
The Fulton’s “the sexiest menu in New York City,”
Jean-Georges justifiably boasts — and with dishes like warm octopus and fresh mozzarella, salmon soaked in brown butter and yellowfin tuna tartare, he’s likely to receive little if any pushback on such a claim. (The New York Times, after all, has been fawning over The Fulton’s whole sea bass in a pastry crust.)
Plus, the operation’s attention to detail doesn’t stop at the tastes and appearances of its elegant, supple dishes. This dining experience is perfectly paired with a stunning view of Brooklyn Bridge out The Fulton’s windows.
