(At the prow of the Port Liberte peninsula and pier, the restaurant can be reached by ferry.) Its govt chef is David C. Felton, who has worked on Hudson Property personal activities because it reopened in 2021. His menu takes its marching orders from the restaurant’s name, which means “land and sea” in Italian. Some of the turfside decisions are porchetta, veal Parmesan on the bone, lamb steak, rib-eye with braised fennel, and a 16-ounce dry-aged strip steak. From the surf are raw bar alternatives, grilled octopus, poached prawns, bucatini with lobster, grilled tuna loin, and lobsters from a two-tale tank to purchase grilled, wood-roasted or steamed. There are vegan and vegetarian objects like farro risotto, cacio e pepe polenta, and celery root steak. The spacious bar is free-standing and seats 60. (Opens Thursday)
