Who has the best Fruits de Mer platter
Should I just assume it is Water Grill (or even one of the King's places)?
Hungry Cat has one but it is far pricier than the one at Water Grill.
I believe Comme Ca does too but am not sure what the quality and quantity might be.
I order plateau de fruits de mer whenever it appears on any menu and Comme Ca wins hands down. It is HUGE and super fresh and delicious. Get the less expensive option. At $48, it is excellent value because it is actually the same size as the $90 version but doesn't include the lobster tail. The quantities of mussels, clams, shrimp and oysters are the same.
Anisette also has excellent fruits de mer, pricier and not as great value as Comme Ca but the quality of the seafood is wonderful.
Do not under any circumstances order fruits de mer at Rush Street. Just plain awful with obviously frozen waterlogged crab and slimy oysters. Across the street the one at Fraiche is much, much better.
