Good Fish Place: Not as Fancy as Le Bernadin but better than B.R. Guest

The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking for suggestions for a great fish place that is not as fancy/expensive as Le Bernadin or Oceana, but has better food than the BR Guest establishments such as Blue Water Grill, Atlanic Grill, etc. I was thinking BLT fish. Any other superior suggestions?

        Milos would be great. Setting is upscale, kind of in between BR Guest places and Le Bernadin. There is the daily fresh fish display on a bed of ice. Food superior to any BR Guest place.

      2. Esca.

          another vote for Esca.

        2. Tides

          1. Any of the above recommendations are much better than BLT Fish. I agree with the recommendations for Aquagrill, and it would be my first choice, but Esca and Milos are also very good. Have not been to Tides.

              1. I recommend Aquavit. They also have a bar menu and bar seating. Last time I went to Aquagrill they were offering Atlantic salmon, which kind of says it all. This was a couple years ago however so things may have changed.
