Now Open: The Fulton by Jean-Georges at The Seaport District
RETURN TO THE ROOTS
Today, Jean-Georges Vongerichten opens The Fulton on Pier 17 in the newly revitalized Seaport District of New York City. The concept takes its name from the Fulton Fish Market, formerly located near the new restaurant's downtown location. Inspired by memories of visiting the bustling fish market as a young chef in 1986, Jean-Georges pays homage to the former market with a menu of seafood-forward fare in a one-of-a-kind waterfront setting.
The modern menu focuses on wild-caught seafood from the East Coast, offering a raw bar of oysters, clams, sea urchin and other crustaceans, alongside starters like Striped Bass Crudo, Bouchot Mussels, Crispy Seafood Rice and Fritto Misto Salad. Larger mains like Longevity Noodles with Glazed Lobster, Fish Stew with Aioli, King Crab and Spring Pea Risotto and a selection of simply prepared seafood round out the menu. Refreshing, seasonal cocktails and a curated wine list offer ideal pairings for sipping from late afternoon into sunset.
UNDERSEA JOURNEY Designed by Yabu Pushelberg with architect Cass Calder Smith, the bi-level restaurant features indoor and outdoor seating with stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge, East River, Manhattan skyline and serene harbor. A series of hand-painted, whimsical murals by artists Chandler Noah and Diego Castaño of En Viu decorate the walls, illustrating an undersea journey, while nautical light fixtures resembling buoys hang from above the sleek quartz countertops. Upstairs, an oyster bar, a private dining room and a series of banquettes, tables and lounge seating offer window-side views of the East River and beyond. The Fulton will be open for dinner to start, followed by lunch and weekend brunch. Reservations can be made via Resy. HOURS Mon–Thurs: 5:30–10:30pm Fri–Sat: 5:30–11pm Sunday: 5:30–10pm Bar seating: 5pm, daily
