Fodor's Review

If you're craving a great raw bar, lobster roll, or soft-shell crab sandwich (in season), Mermaid Oyster Bar gives nearby classics Mary's Fish Camp and Pearl Oyster Bar a run for their money. Almost every dish is a winner here, but the lobster bisque laced with Manzanilla sherry and toasted pumpkin seeds, the blackened striped bass with roasted squash and Swiss chard, and the spicy seafood bucatini fra diavolo are all standouts. From the bar, try something from the list

of perfect-pitch cocktails, like a Dark and Stormy, made with black rum and ginger beer, or a Pimm's cooler with refreshing pieces of fresh cucumber. There are two other locations in Manhattan: on the Upper West Side and in the East Village.
