Where to Get Your Seafood Fix this Summer

It’s a happy season for us, because our number one favorite food group, seafood, is front and center. Which is why we’re showcasing our favorite new places for chowing down on shellfish this summer, from the “pescatarian” Gloria, where red meat doesn’t have any role on the menu, to Simply Hooked, an upscale oasis of fish and chips…

Gloria

Gloria
401 W 53rd St
Midtown West,New York 10019
(212) 956-0709

Hell’s Kitchen’s Gloria has bragging rights as NYC’s first “pescatarian” restaurant (though it certainly won’t be the last!).  A fitting concept for a former Le Bernardin chef (Diego Garcia), the menu focuses solely on seafood from the Eastern Seaboard, resulting in dishes like Jonah Crab with kohlrabi, Skate Wings with tomatillo, Scallops over sea beans and Black Bass Tartare.

Out East

Out East
509 E 6th St
East Village,New York 10009
(212) 509-5096

Focused on the underwater bounty of the Long Island coast, this East Village resto has taken a page out of Gloria’s book, serving direct from the Atlantic catches like Fluke with plums, Montauk Pearl Oysters, Beer Battered Baby Octopus and Live Diver Scallops spritzed with meyer lemon.

Seamore’s

Seamore’s
161 8th Ave
Chelsea,New York 10011
(212) 597-9222

Michael Chernow’s Seamore’s has fast settled into Chelsea, seemingly already a neighborhood favorite.  There’s bowls of Clam Chowder bathed in coconut milk, Blackened Fish Sandwiches and a Catch of the Day sauced with miso brown butter or lemongrass aji, and — extra credit! — a rum bar named Fishbone situated on the lower level.

Simply Hooked

Simply Hooked
47 Clinton St
Lower East Side,New York 10002

This is the place to be in NYC when it comes to fish and chips, alternately inspired by the culinary traditions of Ireland and the Basque region of France.  Choose from Atlantic Pollock, Boston Mackerel, Wild Blue Catfish and Spiny Dogfish, coated with options like organic stout and squid ink tempura or dill and lime panko, and paired with smoked mayo, tartar or sage sauce.

Oceana Poke

Oceana Poke
1700 Broadway
Midtown West,New York 10019
(212) 713-0033

The luxurious shellfish haven, Oceana, is keeping things casual at its very own poke outpost, offering mix-and-match bowls of Yellowfin Tuna, Salmon, Octopus, Swordfish, Scallops and Shrimp, tossed with citrus, cilantro, seaweed, shallots and more.

Sushi by Bou
353 W 14th St

Fulton Landing Seafood Co.

Fulton Landing Seafood Co.
445 Albee Square W
Downtown Brooklyn,New York 11201

Brooklyn’s ginormous new DeKalb Market Hall counts Fulton Landing Seafood Co. (and an adjoining sustainable fish market) as one of its exciting vendors — look for updated coastal classics like Grilled Octopus Rolls, Fried Lobster and grilled or fried Gulf Shrimp, Line-Caught Tuna, Striped Bass or West Coast Halibut, with tots and carrot slaw.

All Hands

All Hands
29 Dunham Pl
Williamsburg,New York 11249
(718) 963-0078

Directly overhanging the East River, the Williamsburg Bridge-adjacent All Hands is helmed by Northern Spy Food Co.’s executive chef.  So you can bet the under-the-sea offerings are wholly sustainable; think Carolina White Shrimp dipped in yuzu kosho cocktail sauce, Albacore Tuna Pastrami piled on buckwheat blini and Maryland Crabcakes deposited in shellfish bisque.
