To that handful of local dining destinations accessible by ferry Waters Edge, Water Taxi Beach, the Red Hook Fairway, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory you can add Maritime Parc, opening next week at Jersey Citys Liberty Landing Marina. (Depart from World Financial Center; schedules at libertylandingferry.com.) With two floors of event space and a 190-seat restaurant and deck, the place might rest on its location laurels. But chef-partner Chris Siversen makes a point to source locally from small sustainable farms, mostly through the Jersey-based farm-to-chef service called Zone 7.

The nautical location dictates a raw bar and a whole fish of the day, but theres also bourride with garlic aoli and sourdough toasts, a French dip, and duck-fat fries on the bar menu, plus cocktails created by Summit Bars Greg Seider. The design, by Stephanie Goto (responsible for the streamlined looks of Aldea and Corton), incorporates sailcloth-inspired translucent scrims, and the kitchen will happily provide boat service to its docked clientele. Check out the menu below, and take a look at the restaurant in our slideshow.
