I think it's outstanding. What beats it?

      Tides, Aquagrill, Mermaid Inn. I didn't enjoy Mary's at all. It was cramped and overpriced.

        For a homey, informal restaurant, it's very good, but I agree that it's pricey. I don't think of it as trying to compete with higher-end places like Le Bernadin or even Aquagrill...it's a different type of restaurant.

          Of course it's not in the same league as Le Bernardin, but neither is Aquagrill in the same league as Le Bernardin. I understand that Mary's is a more low key establishment than an Aquagrill, but if you look at prices on menupages, the cost of dinner at Aquagrill is only a little higher than Mary's. When you throw in much better atmosphere and better food at Aquagrill, it just showcases how much less you get at Mary's.
