Seafood for 50th Birthday
- drbelfer Jul 6, 2010 08:45 AM
Looking for suggestions of Seafood restaurants to celebrate a 50th birthday. Live in Queens but happy to travel to the Manhattan, Westchester, Lower Connecticut or Long Island. We are a family of 4 adults.
We aren’t too much in to fish as much as seafood and we are not really drinkers so wine lists are not of a concern. Just looking for good food, good service and a nice atmosphere.
All suggestions welcome, thanks
A few come to mind in Queens, London Lennies, http://www.londonlennies.com/menus/di...
--you could get lobsters and asstd seafood excluding fish---
The greek places in Astoria are better known for their fish, but many like the scallops or grilled shrimp and squid, or stuffed crabmeat shrimp at Taverna Kyclades, but the place isn't fancy and very noisy---
Aquagrill in Manhattan is popular, but I've not been---so can't comment, but it might suit you...
It really depends what you want, shrimp, lobster, squid--clams?
There are several good places for shrimp and clams, and crabs in Flushing in Queens..
What style of seafood are you looking for? Italian, Asian, Continental, Greek?
If you're into shellfish, why not get some great Paella and Sangria, that's always a fun birthday celebration, and sounds perfect since you are all looking for the same type of seafood...I would go this route, especially for summertime..and throw in some tapas and flan--yummm.You might want to hit up some of the places in NJ or check out places in Manhattan..nothing really great for Spanish like this in Queens--I've tried many..--do a search for best --been the place on east 9th in the city and didn't care for it..but there are lots more choices,,,post on Manhattan board for better suggestions..Socarret gets good reviews, but haven't been...and it's more like bar seating..
Let us know where you end up, and Happy Birthday!
