Best NYC seafood lunch besides Le Bernardin?

ok fellow hounds, i'd love your input on this one. for a really fantastic seafood lunch [price no object], what's the best choice other than le bernardin?
recent experiences/reviews would be very helpful. thanks!
esca gets my vote. if solo, dine at the tiny bar. the crudo is mandatory. the spaghetti neri is very good. try it once. you'll be back.
definitely not oceana, went for lunch and thought it was not worth the money and will never be back. Esca and Le Bernadin I like, have not been to the other two.
Since you have included Markt on your list, I presume you would be open to restaurants with menus that do not focus solely on fish and seafood? If so, I highly recommend Eleven Madison Park. Chef Humm does remarkable things with fish and seafood. The current menu has two fish/seafood apps and 3 main course fish items. The snapper in a saffron endive nage with piquillo peppers is stunning!
