Looking for upscale seafood restuarant

Looking for a seafood place to celebrate 50th birthday. Party of 4. Not really into fish as much as shellfish, so not so much a request for fish places. Price wise dont want to go overboard but figure with 1 round of drinks maybe 200- 250.

If you have suggestions it is much apprecaited.

      Blue Water Grill near Union Square has outstanding fresh seafood for lunch and dinner with outdoor dining and live jazz.

      Blue Water Grill @ 31 Union Square W., New York, NY 212 - 675 - 9500.

        Second Aquagrill, and add Le Bernardin and Esca. Unless that $250 is supposed to cover all four of you, in which case Le Bernardin is out and you'll need to order carefully at Aquagrill and Esca - but I think it can be done. You can do much, much better than Blue Water Grill in Manhattan. Or anywhere, probably.

          Definitely not Blue Water Grill. Oceana might work if you orer carefully. Aquagrill too. I assume you're taking about $250 for 4 people, are you including tax and tip in there along with the 1 round of drinks?

          Marea and Oceana are great.
