Looking for a restaurant that serves a mean raw bar.

We'll be six celebrating a birthday and want to stay in NYC. Median price range. Any recommendations?

  1. New York City encompasses all five boroughs. Did you mean you want to stay in Manhattan?

    When is the birthday?

    How much is "median" price range? It is easier to help if you can name a dollar figure, per person, before tax, tip, wine/drinks.

    Balthazar has a good raw bar, as does Aquagrill and Blue Ribbon. I've heard good things about Prima's as well. It really depends what kind of atmosphere you're looking for.

    1. Yes we want to stay in the city, in Manhattan. The dinner would be in May. By median price range I mean main courses between $23 - $27. Looking for a seafood restaurant, it could be Greek or Italian too. The person we are celebrating loves seafood/raw bars in particular. Thanks.

      1. re: sardine

        What date in May? You may be too late for some restaurants that have a 30 day booking window...

      2. Balthazar as Kathryn mentioned, or John Dory oyster bar.

        1. Agree with Balthazar and will add in Aquagrill.
