Village Voice's Description

This Ace Hotel location marks the second incarnation of seafood emporium the John Dory Oyster Bar, the original having lasted less than a year on a desolate block in West Chelsea. Foot traffic isn't a problem now-the space buzzes nightly with trendsetters and foodies. Despite questionable décor (think tacky Caribbean beach shack meets hip lounge, with a touch of Gymboree), and sometimes inconsistent food, the quality is generally top-notch. Among the small plates, opt for the excellent raw oysters, parsley and anchovy toast, lobster panade, oyster pan roast, and escarole salad. Drop by during off-hours or for lunch: You'll avoid the throngs and hour-long waits and people who think they're the only fish in the sea.

    From the same folks behind The Spotted Pig, the focus here is (obviously!) on seafood. Had a wonderful peeky-toe bruschetta. -Monica Pope, Top Chef

    Don’t miss the impossibly decadent $15 oyster pan roast here, and try the Eccles cake with Stilton for dessert. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

    If it's not too busy, The Dory is a cool place to pop in for oysters and cocktails. For a special occasion, ask about the chef's table tasting in the kitchen. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the sublime kedgeree, studded with flaky haddock and garnished with fried onions, rice, ribbons of omelette and lime. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • The New York Times on 01/26/11

    Oh, man! An hour for a table and you’re in the bar staring at a phone. Order a riesling and the char, make yourself feel better. S’worth it.
