Any good waterfront restaurant in Sheepshead Bay?
I'm tired of the city and going to City Island. I have never ate in Sheepshead Bay waterfront. We don't eat red meat, so preferable good pasta & fish! This is for mother's birthday. Any suggestions?
I heard Il Fornetto is bad, but what about their seafood?
Or any other place would be great: Coney Island, Howard Beach, Far Rockaway, Astoria, Brooklyn heights? Thanks!
We always have had a great time at RANDAZZO'S. An authentic Brooklyn experience. Real "old school"
Seafood is excellent, especially everything fried. Their sauce is the best in the world.
We usually have the Lobster Fra Diavolo for a divine dinner for two
We haven't been since Jackie passed away earlier this year. She was a gracious hostess, and always sent us home with a container of special sauce. She will be missed.

Jordan's is not so much "on the water" as in a lot next to the water. And this time of year you'd probably have to eat inside, which is pretty fast-foody in atmosphere. Quality is debatable, haven't been for a few years but I know I'm not crazy about their lobster roll. (I used to get a hunk of grilled swordfish, which was probably straight from the freezer but made me happy enough.)
Nick's, OTOH, is a nice location and more "restauranty" atmosphere. Went there once, I liked it fine, spouse did not. Never heard a single good word about it here.
Soooo, for a special occasion, I'm not sure I'd recommend either. For just hanging around, sure.
