PLAN DATE: FRI / JUNE 28
Be transported to an underwater culinary delight at The Fulton, the latest restaurant from New York’s darling, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and a tribute to the old Fulton Fish Market that once occupied the Seaport area. It’s pretty rare to get true waterside dining in New York City despite being an island, but at The Fulton, you are quite literally waterside. With unobstructed views of the East River and Brooklyn Bridge, the walls are covered in hand-painted murals that tell the story of sea explorers, who in search of an allegedly seen sea monster, embark on a serendipitous journey. The food is just as outstanding as the views with a seafood-centric menu offering raw and cooked dishes, elevated in a way that only Jean-Georges knows how.
You can never disappoint your date with an ice cream ending, right? Big Gay Ice Cream, just a few doors down in Seaport is sure to impress any ice cream aficionado with their self-proclaimed “world’s best ice cream”. They specialize in soft serve ice cream cones, cups, and novelties with a menu of unique and unusual flavors and toppings. The best part is you can take some home. Big Gay makes pints in even wilder flavors like American Globs—a cult favorite since their food truck days with fudge-covered salted pretzel balls, fudge-covered pretzel pieces, and a fudge swirl all blended into malted sweet cream ice cream.
