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.
