North River Lobster CompanySunday, September 07, 2014
Summer is supposedly over but you wouldn't know it from the still rising temperatures here in New York. I'm not complaining—I'd like to hold on to summer as long as possible! If, like me, you're intent on enjoying every last bit of the remaining warm weather in the city, here's a fun activity to try: hop on the North River Lobster Company boat for seafood, sun and sailing on the Hudson River.
We feasted on oysters, black tiger shrimps, Maine lobster, Mahi-Mahi fish tacos and shrimp po' boys as the boat sailed on the Hudson. There was no shortage of lovely New York views as we lunched and boozed. I would recommend getting there as early as possible if you'd like to dine outside, as the outdoor seating was full by 12:30pm on a Sunday. Also, if you have the tendency to get seasick, I would advise you to pop a pill as this is very much a moving restaurant. But if you love seafood and being "out at sea", an afternoon on the North River Lobster Company boat is a fun and unique use of what remains of this summer.
