Village Voice's Description
Despite the misguided moniker and wacky menu organization (dishes are listed from lightest to heaviest, with appetizers in red and entrees in black), the food at Michael Psilakis's new Cape Coddish-looking seafood joint is high-aspiring and often very successful. Certain dishes are occasionally over-thought to the point of confusion, but chef de cuisine Ryan Skeen pulls out all the stops in dishes like the sheep's milk dumplings with sea urchin fonduta, grilled branzino stuffed with head cheese, and bruschetta slathered with shrimp, feta, and enough members of the allium family to (happily) prevent any imminent make-out sessions.
Tips from foursquare
Can you even get phone reception down here? What you want is the prawn bruschetta, followed by a lamb burger and a glass of big red.
Has an inventive beverage program that might pair your spicy paella soup with "easy drinking session beers" and "sipping rums" with your lamb burger.
You can't go wrong with anything on the menu…and the best Manhattans on the UWS. - Tyler French, Hunting Season
Diners can choose to have their fish cooked one of two ways: as described on the menu, or grilled simply with lemon and olive oil.
Get ready for some delicious and creative cuisine. Be as daring as you like: go for the Branzino Stuffed with Head Cheese, or play it safe with Prawn Bruschetta or Grilled Sea Bass.
