Eat Your Heart Out at Six New Restaurants Inside the Tin Building
At the Seaport, Jean-Georges Vongerichten finally debuted his much-anticipated sprawling culinary destination, the 53,000-square-foot remodeled Tin Building. Once home to the famed Fulton Street Fish Market, the fully renovated space now comprises six full-service eateries, six quick-service counters, four bars and tons of retail and private dining options.
Indeed, this historic space at 96 South Street promises to offer diners an extravagant culinary experience, one sure to delight every visitor’s taste buds. Mouth watering yet? Here’s what awaits.
The Frenchman’s Dough
A French take on an Italian restaurant, the Frenchman’s Dough serves freshly-made artisanal pizzas and pastas.
Seeds and Weeds
This sustainable and artisanal plant-based eatery uses a daily selection of fresh ingredients to create vegan and vegetarian meals. Diners are also treated to a fantastic view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the restaurant’s second-floor perch.
The House of the Red Pearl
Surreptitiously located behind an Asian boutique, this clandestine curtain-covered fine dining restaurant serves the famed chef’s take on Chinese-inspired dishes. Retro decor, including velvet-upholstered banquettes and booths, rounds out the restaurant’s campy yet elevated vibe.
The Fulton Fish Co.
Located on the first floor, this seafood dining counter also boasts a restaurant with a full raw bar. Diners can enjoy daily helpings of the fresh catch of the day, paired with champagne.
Serving as the Tin Building’s French brasserie, this elegant spot celebrates the country’s classic fare. Here, you’ll find elevated takes on standard French dishes like steak tartare, escargot and moules-frites, though the restaurant’s vibe is casual enough that diners can feel comfortable walking in on a whim.
You’ll find this intimate Japanese sushi and sake restaurant on the first floor of the Tin Building, where diners will be treated to a tasty menu comprising fresh and locally-sourced fish. The restaurant’s black-box design decor includes a 12-seat marble counter; at night, the restaurant transforms into an Izakaya, an informal Japanese bar where diners are invited to enjoy drinks and small snacks.
