OSSINING—Ginsburg Development Companies, along with county and village officials staged a ribbon cutting on June 1st to commemorate the official grand opening of 3 Westerly Bar & Grill, a new nautical-themed restaurant located at GDC’s recently completed Harbor Square luxury rental complex on the Hudson River waterfront.

“Today’s grand opening of 3 Westerly Bar & Grill represents the final stage of our Harbor Square development which has transformed a former industrial site into a thriving mixed-use residential community with a public park and riverfront promenade. With the addition of this exciting new restaurant, people can enjoy first-class cuisine while experiencing the timeless beauty of the Hudson River,” said GDC Founder and Principal Martin Ginsburg.

“Westchester County and its Industrial Development Agency are proud to have partnered with Ginsburg Development Companies on the Harbor Square project,” said Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “Now complete, Harbor Square’s innovative development is an attractive community for families, empty nesters and millennials alike, looking to move or stay right here in Westchester.”

The grand opening of 3 Westerly Bar & Grill represents the completion of Harbor Square, a $65-million mixed-use luxury rental complex featuring 188 luxury rental apartments, a new public park with children’s playground, waterfront promenade with monumental sculptures and a dock that serves the NY Waterway Haverstraw-to-Ossining commuter ferry. At press time the development was 90% leased.

Housed within a free-standing lighthouse, the 300-seat restaurant is operated by Jeremy Casilli, a restaurateur whose other venues include TriBeCa’s AOA Bar and Grill, Pier 115 in Edgewater, N.J., and Soho and Tribeca Grand Hotels.

“After much anticipation, we are thrilled to bring this project to fruition and open our doors to the Ossining residents and the Westchester community,” said Casilli. “3 Westerly Bar and Grill will be an iconic destination for people seeking a nautical indulgence. We have worked diligently to create a universal hub for all types of guests. We look forward to sharing our breathtaking views of the Hudson River while dining under our free standing light house structure,”

3 Westerly Bar & Grill’s main dining room seats up to 100. Its main bar, which features a black granite bar surface, raised-booth seating with walls adorned with HD TVs, can accommodate up to 75 patrons.

Under the direction of award-winning Executive Chef Dmitri Petriakov, formerly the executive chef at B.L.T. Prime in New York City, 3 Westerly Bar & Grill offers a wide array of dining options with a pronounced seafood emphasis. The restaurant also offers a full-service outdoor beer garden and sunset terrace capable of entertaining up to 125 guests.
