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 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.
