  • Luke's Lobster
    ####Luke's Lobster When Luke Holden encountered his first New York lobster roll, he couldn't believe his eyes. At around $20, it was over priced, drowning in mayo, and over-stuffed with celery––nothing like the seafood he had become accustomed to while growing up Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Luckily for New Yorkers, Luke was a life-long lobsterman and new exactly what he needed to do. He phoned his father, the owner of a seafood processing company, and together, they devised a plan. Thanks to longstanding relationships with Maine fisherman, Luke was able to arrange to have fresh lobster meat sent directly to him, steamed and sealed in air-tight packages just a few hours after being plucked from the ocean. Once the fresh catches arrive at Luke’s Lobster, Luke and his chef fold a full quarter-pound of the tender morsels into the toasted, Maine-style rolls that were lauded by The New Yorker. A tiny smear of mayo allows the lobster to shine through, enhanced simply with a light sprinkling of butter, lemon, and secret spices. Crab and shrimp rolls come similarly garnished, though the seafood is so fresh that Luke's even gives diners the option to skip all the extra stuff and let the meat stand on its own. Those who have extra room can sample New England Clam Chowder, made in Maine from the seafood processed at Luke's family's company or wash the briny goodness down with a Maine Root Soda, which offers up hints of blueberry, orange, ginger, and the rich, Maine soil from whence it sprang.

  • Marea
    Marea Ristorante Marea means “tide” in Italian, hinting at the restaurant’s concentration: seafood, especially seafood plucked from the four bodies of water that surround the bottom of the boot-shaped peninsula. The menu comes courtesy of chef and owner Michael White, who New York Times critic Sam Sifton lauded like so: “He cooks Italian food as if it were purely American: big and bold.” Though diners can select specific plates from the eatery’s extensive menu—fusilli with braised octopus, lobster ravioli, salt-baked Italian wild bass—the staff recommends the four-part, prix-fixe menu. This menu includes a crudo, ostriche, or antipasto; pasta; fish or meat; and a dessert, such as almond milk panna cotta with black mission fig or the semifreddo di niccola, with dark chocolate, piedmont hazelnut, and a partial serving of freddo. The highbrow reputation of Marea Ristorante’s cuisine is matched only by the restaurant’s atmosphere. The bar, backed by a rippled amber wall resembling underwater rock formations, competes for attention with white tablecloths that pop next to dark, wood-grained booths. Llittle touches add an extra-layer of refinement to the dining room, including silver-dipped conches and nautiluses that sit on the windowsills in shiny homage to the sea. It all adds up to an appealing eatery Zagat named New York City’s Best Italian Restaurant in 2012.

  • A Taste Of Seafood
    Sheila Thomas's seafood shrine has been a staple in Harlem for the past 20 years, but the legacy of the food goes back much further. A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Sheila came to New York with recipes given to her by her mother after being passed down through generations of family cooks. Today, lines of hungry diners line up to get a taste of her southern-style home cooking, starting with the juicy strips of whiting, shrimp, and catfish that emerge from the bubbling fryers. To craft her award-winning fried fish sandwiches, Sheila's staff pile breaded fillets atop a whole-wheat bun or slices of white bread before smothering it in creamy tartar sauce and just a hint of Tabasco. That same famous fried fish can also be made into a dinner, paired with southern sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese, smoky collard greens, or fried okra. Ultraplump chicken wings satiate the seafood-fearing crowd, and healthier alternatives such as steamed crab legs make it easier to indulge in one of the decadent desserts including red velvet cake, peach cobbler, or carrot cake, which is technically a vegetable.

  • Ithaka Restaurant
    After Ithaka’s seven-year stint as the best Greek restaurant in Greenwich Village according to Gayot, chef Harry Hatziparaskevas decided it was time for a change of scenery. Northeastward he went, to Ithaka’s current location on the Upper East Side. He brought with him the same authentic menu, which Time Out New York praises for offering “perfectly prepared traditional Greek dishes," such as moussaka, kapamas, and kalamari scharas—whole marinated squid charbroiled with lemon and olive oil. The new locale is roomy and rustic, with exposed ceiling beams, brick floors, and dreamlike paintings of Mediterranean destinations hanging from white, textured walls.
