From the trendy (The Smile and Sugarfish) to the G.O.A.T (Marea), New York’s seafood game has never been better.

1 Marea

Marea, from the Italian word "tide," is located on Central Park South and boasts an award-winning Italian menu centered around seafood delicacies. Chef Michael White's talents have awarded him continued praise, including two Michelin stars and a devoted crowd of New Yorkers who refer to Marea as the best seafood in the city.

2 Luke's Lobster

Luke's motto is "serving sustainable seafood straight from the source," equal parts delicious and environmentally conscious. Luke's Lobster, by many accounts, has the best lobster roll in the city, and the lines during lunch time at any location speak for themselves.

3 The Smile

The cozy, subterranean café on picturesque Bond Street in Downtown Manhattan is located in a landmark 1830s Federal-style townhouse. Firmly rooted in the local community, The Smile is helmed by executive chef and partner Melia Marden where she serves wholesome and delicious Mediterranean-inspired fare influenced by her time in Greece.

4 Sugarfish

Sushi master Kazunori Nozawa's first restaurant in New York came with a lot of buzz from his revered mini-chain in Los Angeles, and for good reason. The restaurant's fish comes mainly from Japan and Boston, and is served fresh for that "melt in your mouth" experience. Expect a simple but delicious menu with omakase options.

Combining novel flavors and beautifully presented sushi, Masa focuses on both cooked and raw items, prepared to highlight the natural flavors of the fresh ingredients. One of their most popular dishes, Kappa Masa's surimi pasta, is made entirely of seafood with a delicious smokey taste.
