Marea - New York, NY

Even though the atmosphere at Marea is a bit corporate and noisy and the service not too great, it is still the best place for fish in NYC.

I love going there for the sea urchins…raw or cooked as a pasta sauce. As children we use to find them in the rocks near our beach house. Black and sinister looking when opened, the orange-colored flesh eaten raw with lemon juice was one of the sweet tastes of my childhood. The sea urchins at Marea bring those memories back.

When I venture into other kinds of sea products I am never disappointed. The octopus is especially tender and tasty. The prices are on the high side but well worth it.
