Where in manhattan do I take a 30+ man who absolutely loves shrimp? Looking for nice place.

Thank you!

    There is a place in the Village called Mara's Homemade on E 6th St between 1st and 2nd Ave but closer to 1 st. They have several fantastic shrimp dishes with a New Orleans style to them. Great inexpensive fresh oysters too!

      I'm a fan of the Grand Marnier Prawns at Shun Lee.

        How nice are we talking? Do you have a neighborhood or cuisine preference?

          Just nice or super nice. No neighbourhood preference. The place should have at least one very good shrimp dish. Thank you.

            Best shrimp dish I've had in recent memory was the shrimp malai kabob at Dhaba. Exquisite, excellent, perfect.
