It’s hard to score a stool at Mary’s Fish Camp (spawned from Pearl Oyster Bar) but it’s definitely worth the effort! You can indulge in a Seafood Feast in a charming and casual setting in the heart of the West Village (with the feeling that you’ve been transported to Cape Cod). So put your name on the list and grab a cocktail at a nearby spot- Fedora, San Ambroeus, etc.

Lure is a staple in Soho. I’ve been so many times (pre-Sip, Chat, Chow) so I wanted to make sure I added the seafood inspired subterranean resto to my list of Chow Faves!

The decor is reminiscent of a cruise ship. Thank God that’s not the case when it comes to the food. The menu houses high quality and consistent cooked fish dishes, sushi, raw bar items and a few other treats. Chef Josh Capon doesn’t disappoint- he delivers flavorful fish and a killer burger!

The upbeat and bustling dining room at Lavo is fully stocked with lively peeps (a mix of old and young), a resident DJ and a vivacious vibe. The energy in the room is just as big as the menu. You’ll find Italian standards like Baked Clams, Chicken Parm, Pasta, Steak and Pizza. The food is good, and the club downstairs gets poppin’!  All and all, Lavo is a good midtown option. I’ve been to Lavo many times and it never disappoints (the kitchen stays open till 1a and 3a on the weekend)!

We went to Lavo last night with Milwaukee Bucks Guard Brandon Jennings and he loved the food and atmosphere.
