Fodor's Review

Chef April Bloomfield and former rock-band manager turned restaurateur Ken Friedman can do no wrong. After winning taste buds and palates with gastropub Spotted Pig and the Breslin, the duo turned their 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 squid, an excellent lobster roll—but focuses on crudo (raw) dishes. The happy-hour special of $2 oysters and half off certain wines and beers is the perfect start to an evening.
