Need fabulous seafood restaurant not Le Bernardin!

  • 8

Our New York cousin's 80th birthday. He loves seafood. He won't let us take him to Le Bernardin (he's off the "nothing is worth that much money" school!). Help! Need a great place for maybe 75.00 a person? Is BLT Fish still open and is it worth it?

  1. Try Esca, 43rd and 10th. Sounds like just what you are looking for.

        I second this. Very good seafood but in a more casual and well-priced setting. From what I've read about BLT Fish, the shack downstairs isn't worth it (plus, I don't think you can reserve) while the restaurant upstairs is good but very pricey.

          I've been there twice where they over cooked my scallops

        2. You could try Milos.

          1. I have to agree with Aquagrill. It is amazingly consistent.

            1. thanks - Aquagrill it is
