has been doing time as an oyster bar this summer, stationed in the Hudson River near Tribeca's Pier 25."This was the place where the best oysters in America came from," says Alex Pincus, one of the founders of Grand Banks.The only problem is the weather; once it turns cold, Pincus and his crew plan to bring Grand Banks down south to a warmer climate to set up the same concept. One thing is for certain: Grand Banks will be back in Manhattan for the summer of 2015.And there is no shortage of other cool floating restaurants to sample in the meantime.Some settings are casual and perfect after a day on the beach (Kruvit on the Thai island of Phuket).Others are downright trendy; celebrities, dignitaries, and businesspeople converge at summer hot spot 360istanbul in the middle of the Bosporus.“I said to her that I didn’t want to feel like I had ever worn this dress before, and I don’t want to wear it ever again,” she explained. “You can’t make that into anything, you just put it in a box.“I’m keeping it.” So, don’t expect the dress to be altered, or show up in another reincarnation in Adams’ closet.
"You feel the boat move, and you have the wind, and you have a stunning waterfront view." Any restaurant can opt for nautical décor; the appeal of floating restaurants like Grand Banks lies in the distinctive setting, fantastic views, and menus—whether Chinese or Italian—that showcase fresh seafood.
And for those who want to go all out, there's Di Millo's Lobster Bake—clam chowder, salad, one lobster, steamed clams, vegetables, a potato, a drink of your choice, and blueberry cobbler to finish it off.
Built to resemble a majestic ancient imperial palace, Jumbo Kingdom—and its adjacent Tai Pak restaurant—floats in the waters between Hong Kong Island and Ap Lei Chau island.
The menu includes a cucumber-lined lobster roll, fluke crudo, and all kinds of oysters.
After beach hopping on the island of Phuket, head to the Laem Hin Pier to catch a free long-tail speedboat for the two-minute ride to Kruvit, a casual floating restaurant built from bamboo rafts.
With its view of the Bosporus Bridge, this is the kind of restaurant that lulls you into sticking around for a long indulgent meal.
