The event spared no expense as party-goers were wined and dined with decadent culinary offerings, endless glasses of Champagne and tasty signature cocktails. To get a taste of what’s to come from the gourmet seafood eatery, The Fulton offered generous servings of seafood towers brimming with fresh oysters, clams, scallops and crab; a sushi bar with fresh sashimi; dumplings decorated with 24K gold flakes, blinis and caviar; fish ‘n chips and so much more. Signature cocktails were passed around the spacious bottom floor and outdoor area, including favorites like the lemon drop cocktail and strawberry margarita.

The guest of honor—famed restaurateur and chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten—was present throughout the night, mixing, mingling and dancing with friends and family who all came out to support the highly-anticipated launch of his newest dining destination. The space was completed to perfection, taking on its waterfront theme, boasting breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge that served as the perfect backdrop. The beautiful outdoor deck was decked out for the occasion, bumping with music from a live DJ and instrumentals.
