Geoffrey Zakarian's Next Restaurant Will Be On The Seven Seas

Geoffrey Zakarian
Geoffrey Zakarian currently has two restaurants in NYC, The Lamb's Club and The National. So, what do you do when you've conquered the Big Apple? Go sailing, apparently. The Next Iron Chef winner has just announced a patnership with the Norwegian Breakway, a new ship that is scheduled to launch in May of 2013. He will create a seafood-centric restaurant for the project dubbed Ocean Blue.

The ship will berth in NYC and make weekly trips to Bermuda - Zakarian promises that he'll be on board at some points to greet guests, create more intimate dinners for select guests and perform cooking demonstrations. The eatery will have an area for wine and oysters dubbed Raw Bar (we wonder if they catch the stuff as they steam on) and there will be a more casual concept attached to it that will be called Ocean Blue on The Waterfront. NYC restaurateurs partnering with cruise lines is a bit of a trend, with Le Cirque also dishing out their fare to nautical travelers on Holland American lines.
