With recent weather reminding us how fabulous NYC is during the spring and summer months, it couldn’t have been a better time for North River Lobster Company to return on the Hudson River for the 2023 season.
This beloved, floating seafood restaurant has cruised the river each spring/summer since 2014. Whether you’re a lobster lover, seafood fanatic or one to simply enjoy a stunning city view from the water, North River Lobster Company is the perfect warm weather activity.
Classic menu favorites like the world’s longest lobster roll (28 inches long) better known as The Shelley and the Lower East Side Lobster Roll served on a flavorful everything bagel will return. Plus, never before offered items such as The Skagen Shrimp Roll, Tuna Tartare, Clam Dips & Chips, and Lobster Clawsicles (available in five different flavors) will be featured this year.
Wash all that buttery lobster down with a Midtown Mule or Sailor’s Spritz and it sounds like a heavenly day to us! And yes, the three-story boat has a full-service bar on every level.
“We are thrilled to be back for another season,” said Craig Kanarick, Chief Executive Officer of New York Cruise Lines, Inc. “We’re looking forward to welcoming back our loyal customers and introduce new guests to the North River Lobster Company experience. In addition to the new menu additions, we’ve got some fun surprises waiting for our guests on the boat including new design elements and fun ways to make your pictures of NYC truly unique!”
