John Dory (in the Ace Hotel from April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman) is a seafood lovers playground. I love the unique pairings and flawless preparations set in this casual gastropub. The inventive tapas style menu compliments the layout, seating and quirky decor.

Come prepared for a wait because they don’t take ressies.

CHOW FAVES:

Parker House Rolls- These are a must!

Oysters- It comes with their own blended cocktail sauce….the perfect accompaniment!


Poached Lobster with Tomalley Vinaigrette- Fresh and tasty.

Shrimp- You eat it all, even the skin. It’s delicious!

Roasted Beets and Smoked Trout- Great flavor profiles.

Mortadella Stuffed Mussels – I get this every time….it’s strikingly good!

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta, Scharfe Maxx and Mushrooms- A medley of goodness.

THE SWEET SPOT-

Trecale- It’s kind of like pound cake doused in a cream sauce. A great way to end the meal- definitely meant to be shared because of the richness.

SIP-

A terrific tequila, honey and jalapeno cocktail.

John Dory- Ace Hotel- 1196 Broadway at 29th St / 212-792-9000
