Meet Kerry Heffernan, Executive Chef at Grand Banks, the Hudson River Seafood Boat Restaurant

Grand Banks is a great seafood restaurant sitting on an old fishing-vessel in the Hudson River, off Pier 25 in Tribeca. Operating as a 501(c)3 non-profit, their mission is to generate funds to support maritime conservation, education, and preservation. In this profile from Zagat, meet Executive Chef Kerry Heffernan and see how his dedication to sustainability and simplicity drive the menu at Grand Banks.

In Zagat's season finale of Staff: The Extraordinary People of the Restaurant World, we visit Grand Banks Executive Chef Kerry Heffernan, who is making an effort to guide more chefs and restaurants towards sustainability. Can one chef's revitalized approach to cooking catch on throughout the restaurant industry?
