Well, it's hard to get a much better view of the waterfront than sitting right on a boat. If you get seasick, don't go to Grand Banks. The rocking of the ship can certainly be felt. But, if you're a salty sea dog then this place in an amazing opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, feel the breeze from the Hudson on your face, and decimate oysters. Small plates are good too, but in all honesty if you're sitting out here on a warm summer day, raw bar and cocktails are the way to go. Keep it light, refreshing, and enjoy the scenery.

Food is way better than Frying Pan. This spot is a little out of the way but it's totally worth the trip!
