      I like snapper, sea bass. not so excited by branzino

    2. Don't know if it's the best in the city but whole fish at Mermaid Inn on Amsterdam and 87th is very good!

      1. I am obsessed with the grilled turbot with salsa verde at Montmartre. If I don't have it once a week I just don't feel right....

        Ammos and Kellari also have good simple grilled whole fish. (head on, of course)

        Milos is amazing but pricey.

        1. Try Boukies in the East Village

          1. Momofuku Ssam has had whole porgy the past couple of times I've been there. It's delicious.

              The porgy at Ma Peche was pretty amazing.
              For simple grilled fish, Robataya does a good job.
