Village Voice's Description

This long-running downtown seafood spot (founded 1997) was conceived as something of a counterweight to the ponderous Oyster Bar at Grand Central, a looser and hipper spot where, nonetheless, the number of raw oysters offered was impressive. The place is even more relaxing today, because the tumultuous bar scene has calmed down, making it a quintessential date spot. The warm octopus salad with onion vinaigrette makes a pleasing starter, with tentacles as supple as glove leather, or you could build a meal around one of the towering plateaux de mer featuring Jonah crab claws, periwinkles, lobster, and raw clams. The bouillabaisse is one of the most authentic versions in town, only lacking the glueyness that sends the Provencal original into orbit.

    Try chef and owner Jeremy Marshall's fascinating falafel-crusted salmon at this neighborhood favorite.

    The Manhattan clam chowder is brilliant - the essence of the clam juice is so pure, that clam screams right at you. - Jeffrey Saad, United Tastes of America

    This place can be busy on Friday & Saturday nights. Try their JalapeƱo Quencher cocktail while you wait to be seated. Perfectly sweet & spicy.

    Freshest Oysters! Get the Blue Point, La St. Simon, Raspberry Point & Canoe Lagoon. The truffle crusted cod is also a must try. It's one of my favorite NYC restaurants

    Everyone who loves Lure Fishbar is wrong. Aquagrill is 5x better. Make sure to start with some oysters!
