Fodor's Review

Chef April Bloomfield and former rock band manager-turned-restaurateur Ken Friedman can do no wrong. Their third restaurant—after the gastropub-y Spotted Pig and the Breslin—turns its attention to the sea. Fish tanks with brightly colored reefs and floor-to-ceiling windows create an eye-pleasing venue for the seafood feast that awaits those who snagged tables at this restaurant off the lobby of the hip Ace Hotel. The menu is dominated by small plates—chorizo-stuffed
