2 La Grenouille $$$$ French3 E. 52nd St., Manhattan, NY
3 Le Bernardin 99 TastyRx $$$$ French, Seafood155 W. 51st St., Manhattan, NY
“Eric Ripert is a genius with fish. The products are wonderful, the cooking faultless, the service masterful, and the sommelier (Aldo Sohn) rater the best in the world. Once, Le Bernardin was a French restaurant specializing in fish; now it’s a fish restaurant where not much is French, other than an insistence on culinary flawlessness.”
4 Marea 95 $$$$ Italian, Seafood240 Central Park S., Manhattan, NY
“This Italian seafood restaurant seemed fully formed the moment it opened early in 2009, and it offers so many choices you’ll think a fishing armada had set sail to stock the kitchen. Nobody eating Michael White’s food ever complains that there’s nothing of interest on his menus. Don’t miss the fusilli with red wine–braised octopus and bone marrow, magnificent with a glass of red wine.”
