Thank goodness for a blizzard in NYC as it is usually impossible to get a reservation at Marea at a reasonable hour. The night didn't start off great. The bartender had one of the cockiest attitudes I have seen at a high end restaurant. After barely paying attention to our drink order that he messed up, he tried to blame us. Luckily the couple next to us called him out for being wrong. After that the night was flawless. We ordered the four courses and a great bottle of Pinot Noir. The pasta was like nothing I have ever tasted. Highly suggest the pasta with bone marrow or the one served with clams. The raw fish was a great starter because it was flavorful but not filling. I had the scallops as an entree...amazing. We finished the meal with ice cream. Expect to pay around $400 to $500 for this exceptional dining experience, but well worth it. If you go to the bar don't order from the gentleman. He was even cocky to another couple. Great way to welcome people to the restaurant.
