Morimoto Sushi & Sake Sunset Sail – A Foodie’s Nirvana on the Hudson River



Classic Harbor Line Cruises has teamed up with one of the finest restaurants in the city for an amazing culinary cruise experience. Led by lovely Captain Sarah Greer, the “lively” 80-foot schooner Imagine sails the lower part of New York Harbor past the iconic sites of the city (The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wall Street, Battery Park) while you are served sushi and sake pairings of a quality that you’d expect from Iron Chef Morimoto. Morimoto in the Meatpacking District knows sushi and sake, and Classic Harbor Line knows sailing and service. Together, the evening is unforgettable. We enjoyed some most unusual sakes, too -- sparkling sake, an organic Junmai Ginjo sake, and several others -- while feasting on anything-but-usual sushi selections. The schooner, built in New York State to replicate a historic vessel with gorgeous teak and brass, leaves from Chelsea Piers (Pier 62) on Monday nights. For a two-hour sail, the price is $105 per person, with their last summer sushi sailings on September 14 and 21. For those of you who prefer beer to sake, on Wednesdays, Classic Harbor Line offers an Autumnal Beer Pairing Cruise. They also have a Sunday Afternoon Tea Cruise, Wine Tasting Cruises, and more. And you thought the Circle Line was the only way to see Manhattan by water? Personally, we can’t wait to go on their Fall Foliage Sail this October up the Hudson River Valley. www.sail-nyc.com
