The dining room at Turquoise Seafood Restaurant might seem familiar to reality-television fans—last year, the eatery had a cameo on the Bravo program Shahs of Sunset. It’s no wonder the affluent cast was attracted to Turquoise’s elegant new digs, recently updated with arched ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and white leather chairs. The food is just as luxurious: the menu’s crown jewels are large whole fish such as barbounia and dorado royal, which are often grilled, fried, or skewered on a diamond-encrusted scepter.
Those looking for a smaller entree can opt for plates of crispy broiled sea scallops or butterflied jumbo shrimp served over rice. Turquoise’s team of five chefs, who have served in the same kitchen for more than 10 years, give equally considerate treatment to the sides. Long Island Newsday’s Feed Me columnist Marjorie Robins said the “homemade green tahini, baba ganoush, tzatziki, and pickled vegetables . . . don’t get better than this”, and her colleague Peter Gianotti raved that “after a course or two, you’re hooked.”
