It was a great seafood restaurant, but don't bother going as it is now officially closed. I tasted my first caviar here (15 years ago), so this restaurant will always hold a special place in my 'belly'.

This is one of our favorite first night restaurants in NYC. I had white fish which was a little overcooked, but half lobster was unblemished. On the menu we missed crab and langoustines.

First time for us. We had lunch and enjoyed the seafood tower and mussels. The service was top notch, the food simply wonderful. Nice place, be sure to give it a try.
