The Floating Oyster Bar Where Chanel Iman, Taylor Schilling, and Aziz Ansari Toast the Summer

Via Vogue:

Grand Banks, set in the 1942-built wooden schooner Sherman Zwicker, spends the warmer months docked at Manhattan’s Pier 25—perhaps the city’s breeziest spot for sustainably harvested oysters and ruby-red Muri-Gries rosé from the north of Italy. Luminaries like Chanel Iman, Marisa Tomei, Taylor Schilling, Erin Heatherton, and Aziz Ansari—as well as the Wall Streeters and Condé Nast editors who populate nearby office towers—climb aboard for chef Kerry Heffernan’s lobster rolls and fried Montauk blowfish tails, a tribute to the boat’s past as a fishing vessel that prowled up and down the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Lauren Schell’s nautical cocktails, like the Campari-spiked Italian Ambassador to Mars, give this stretch of the Hudson River an air of the Mediterranean as the sun sets over the Garden State.
