Swanky ships and water views are on the menu
Waterfront dining, yachts and plenty of seafood will all be on hand when River Yacht Club opens up at 401 SW 3rd Avenue on February 17. The culinary and mega “lifestyle venture” by the Dupoux Partners and The Chetrit Group plans to house an outdoor garden, a membership boat marina and a large restaurant with the same name.
Heading up the culinary component is executive chef Michael Lewis who has done stints at multiple Zuma locations and Jean Georges restaurants throughout the world. His menu will lean heavily on the “fruits of the sea” with side dishes that have a Mediterranean twist. The space will also feature an rooftop lounge, sponsored by uber swanky VanDutch Yachts, naturally, that promises to have plenty of cocktails and sunset views. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.
