The North River Lobster is open from late spring until September. It is a three-deck boat in Hell’s Kitchen that serves some of the best New England fare in town. It prides itself, in fact, on being the biggest “floating lobster shack” along the Hudson River. The shack is owned by New York Cruise Lines.
The boat, formerly a privately chartered vessel, was renovated into the North River Company in 2014 and has a capacity of 450. Food and drink spans the gamut from fresh seafood dishes to cocktails to raw bar delights. With each order, a sail is included.
The cruise encourages all passengers to enjoy its lobster delicacies and also witness breathtaking sites of New York City. Diners can join in on the fun four times a day. Though the concept is elaborate, visitors can stop by for a quick lunch or a fancy dinner. The North River Lobster also offers happy hour specials for those who fancy lobster at that time.
The cruise does not take reservations. Rather, it bases its service on a first-come, first-serve basis. To sail, visitors only need to pay $10. The menu features elaborate dishes, such as the Captain’s Special Maine Lobster and the New Yorker Lobster Roll. The first is a lobster dish served with corn, seasoned potatoes, garden vegetables, lemon wedges, and butter. The second is a lobster dish served on a brioche bun and topped with onion, celery, and whole grain mustard aioli.
Additionally, there is a new bar on each level that allows people to get together after work or just to hang out and watch the sunset. The North River Lobster cruise provides visitors with the perfect after-work combination: relaxation and feast. It encourages visitors to dine luxuriously while enjoying the passing scenes of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline.
