SEAFOOD LOVE: NYC EDITION

Living on the East Coast is different in obvious ways from other regions throughout the US.  We have a higher coast of living, public transportation is a norm, you can find Timbs year round ANYWHERE, and easy access to a great selection of seafood.  I know Beyoncé said she would take her man to Red Lobster, but that is the last place on our minds out here on the East Coast.  There are so many great places to grab some good crustaceans, but here is a short list I complied.

 

The Boil – This Cajun/Creole seafood spot located on the Lower East Side opened in 2013, and since then have expanded to a second location in Greenwich Village.  There are a lot of celebrity sightings at both locations, but don’t let that distract from the most important reason to drop by which is the food.  The boil bag is their most popular item on their menu.

Lure Fish Bar –  Mentioned in a previous post Top 5 Eats In SoHo it is considered an upscale seafood restaurant with only the freshest selection.  The decor is unforgettable and the entire restaurant appears to look like the inside of yacht.  Some of my favorites include their Lobster Mac and Cheese, King Crab California Roll, Slow Baked Halibut, and Grilled Octopus.

GET SHORTY ORDERED ON EPIX!

Reboots continue to prove there’s nothing new under the sun, but “Get Shorty,” a dark and satisfying 10-episode series premiered Sunday on Epix, makes a persuasive case for recycling. Based primarily in spirit on the 1990 Elmore Leonard novel, the series is a fine upgrade from the almost forgettable 1995 film version that starred John Travolta in his “Pulp Fiction” afterglow. This “Get Shorty” succeeds mainly by making a viewer forget that anything else came before, and shouldn’t that be the goal of all remakes?

Creator/showrunner Davey Holmes (whose writing credits include “Shameless” and “In Treatment”) and co-executive producers Allen Coulter (“The Sopranos”) and Adam Arkin have basically ripped “Get Shorty” down to the studs, remodeling it with a longer arc and richer context.

It’s still about a hit man who tries to make it in the movie business, but this time there’s a “Breaking Bad” sense of desert seediness matched with naive Hollywood scheming that feels somehow fuller and more authentic than past iterations. If nothing else, “Get Shorty” proves just how good the people who make TV are at making TV!

Save Ya Money: Sugar Factory

My reason for reviewing food establishments is because I have always wanted to share my experience with others.  If it was amazing – I wanted you to experience the same thing.  If it was terrible – I wanted to keep you from wasting your money.  For this reason I have decided to create a new segment called “Save Ya Money”.  I hope this does not become something that is a regular occurrence, but if you know me I am ALWAYS going to tell you the truth.  Things that would appear in this segment would include food crazes that do not live up to the hype or an overall sub-par experience.  At the end of the day I don’t want you to waste your time or money.

 

 

I recently visited the new Sugar Factory location on the Upper West Side that has been open for several months.  Sugar Factory is known for their over-sized drink goblets and their celebrity sightings.  Before going to any new restaurant I normally check out their (more…)
