really good seafood in Manhattan.
My wife and our two twenty something kids with their significant others would like to have a good seafood dinner this Sunday. Anywhere near West Village, Soho Chelsea? Please help.
Including neighboring neighborhood (MPD, Tribeca, etc)... and not limiting to "only seafood" places, but also including those who always have multiple fishy options among regular menus:
Soto (small portions, need to do multiple courses, exquisite but the $$ can really add up)
Morimoto (skip the sushi, go with prepared dishes... playful and fun, good for a group)
Western, mid to high:
Marc Forgione (five seafood apps, four entrees. Chili Lobster is a classic, Halbut with Sauce "Proposal" fantastic, great octopus and baked oysters as well)
Lupa (always great seafood antipasti, and a few different secondi)
Annisa (four apps, four entrees currently)
Acme (looks like they have one table left on opentable, at 9PM - great, fresh, local fare, not overdone with butter or heavy sauces. Awesome fish and veggie dishes, the "barley and clams" is a classic in the making)
Chinatown seafood specialists, with excllent quality:
Ping's Seafood (more creative than typical Cantonese chefs)
Oriental Garden (more traditional)
