Take a Bite Out of Shark Week 2017 at These New York Spots

Get your wetsuit ready, Shark Week is back and there are several New York City area restaurants, hotels and activities for shark lovers to dive into.

Shark Week has become a summertime staple where shark themed content swims into Discovery Channel’s prime time lineup. 

Take a bite out of Shark Week 2017 by exploring these New York City restaurants, hotels and attractions:

  • The Broadway lounge inside the New York Marriott Marquis, 1535 Broadway, will turn into a nautical paradise and play Shark Week on TVs all across the bar while serving themed food and cocktails.
  • Ride The Beast, a speed boat that looks like a shark, and take a twisty trip down the Hudson River. Since this extreme speed boat can reach 45 mph, it is not recommended for the faint of heart.
  • See real life sharks at the New York Aquarium in the Bronx. Visitors can get a glimpse of sand tiger sharks and their gleaming fangs. The shark exhibit is one of the few exhibits open while the aquarium is under construction.
  • Brave souls can feed and swim with sharks at the Long Island Aquarium, 431 East Main St., Riverhead, NY. The two exhibits are a part of the Aquarium’s Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit.
  • Pearl's, 178 N 8th St., Brooklyn, NY, gives shark lovers an opportunity to take a bite out of the feared fish with the restaurant's Bake and Shark sandwich.
  • Plant-based eaters can head to Mother of Pearl NYC, 95 Avenue A, a plant based Tiki bar with a vegan-friendly cocktail for shark lovers named Shark’s Eye.
  • Cold Stone Creamery, which has several New York City locations, has created two signature ice cream treats that Shark Week fanatics can chomp on. Coldstone will also have a social media contest where ice cream lovers can post photos of the two signature creamy creations using #ColdStoneSharkWeek for a chance to win prizes.
  • The Folly, 92 West Houston St., is a nautical-themed restaurant shaped like a ship, that serves a seafood and rum cocktails fit for a pirate.
