ISO the grandest seafood tower!

Searching for the awesomest - freshest - over the top - seafood tower in NYC! Preferably one with more than the usual suspects in the mix (clams, lobster, oysters, shrimp etc) Would love some whelks, periwinkles, langoustines. Celebrating an anniversary and will go all out!

    The John Dory's shellfish plateau has whelks and all the good stuff.

      I think Bathazar (sp?) does a decent job there.

        Second Balthazar - the gf & I had their biggest one for dinner one night, ridiculous assortment. It varies seasonally, but everything was fantastic, crazy selection of stuff.

          Balthazar, their triple tier is a feast! A seafood tower extravaganza. Will take you a good 2 hrs to enjoy. Don't forget their wine list: Sauvignon blanc.

          Aquagrill should be able to hook you up.

            +1 Aquagrill.
            Ridiculously fresh seafood assortments always.

            Would you consider the fruits de mer at the NoMad? Not your traditional seafood platter, it's composed raw bar dishes.
