Village Voice's Description

Michael White's temple to Italian seafood is full of pleasures. It's also full of incredibly rich people. To experience Marea on something approaching the cheap, go for one of the pastas, which are the both the best, and most affordable dishes they offer. They're all hand-made, and each piece is so lovely and singular that you find yourself staring at them the way parents marvel at the toes and fingers of a newborn. Try the ridiculously delicious plate of homemade fusilli with octopus and bone marrow, or a neat heap of spaghetti generously slicked with a vividly orange sauce of puréed sea urchin, topped with crab, an exercise in oceanic excess. There are three non-seafood pastas to choose from--the best of the bunch is garganelli in a simple pork sausage ragù. The tubular egg noodles are so fresh, they almost feel alive under your teeth.

    Michael White knocks it out of the park at his high-end Italian seafood spot. Go big on the crudo, followed with pasta and whatever fish they're most excited about that day. [Eater 38 Member]

    I could live on the uni and lardo ricci, perfect langostines or bone marrow and octopus fusilli. The choice and quality are staggeringly good. -Gail Simmons, Top Chef

    Get the awesome, over-the-top "fusilli with octopus and bone marrow" at Marea. As seen on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations - Food Porn 2.
