Summer Is Here: Floating Bar Grand Banks Returns With a New Menu Next Friday

Kerry Heffernan's new menu offers some creative seafood-focused small plates.

Daniel Krieger

Yesterday, the Grand Banks team set sail from their winter home up the Hudson and docked their straight-from-your-summer-dreams ship at Tribeca's Pier 25. They'll spend the next week settling in and will take guests on board starting next Friday, May 15. Kerry Heffernan, who was the original chef at Eleven Madison Park, has signed on for the summer season (much like the Sussman's at Ruschmeyer's, it's nice work if you can get it). He hasn't changed the concept from a raw bar and seafood-focused small plates, but there are some new options like poached oysters with celery root, salsify, guanciale, and garlic panko, and a crudo of sea bream with rhubarb, tarragon and clementine oil.
