    The restaurant's yellow fin tuna confit sandwich, topped with fried artichokes and served on fresh focaccia, is a favorite. Read more

    $1 oysters for HH and the best tuna sandwich (confit, of course) in the city. Other menu musts: scallop crudo & lobster curry are packed with flavor. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check!

    After getting wrecked in a freak crane accident, Crave is back in the same ‘hood. Killer decor isn't the only new addition to this old favorite, though, the menu features a variety of new dishes. Read more

    Gob during happy hour where they offer $1 oysters Monday thru Friday. Crave nails it on the chopped spicy scallop over a sheet of sweet potato and the Merluza fish as a main. Def going back...

    Check your bill before you pay. They put a $50 gratuity on my (originally) $127 bill and then proceed to give me an attitude when I asked about it.

    For best results get the Swordfish but ask for it plated like the scallops. Tomatillo salsa and roasted corn. AMAZING!

    Tuna confit with salami, asparagus on focaccia bread sounds better than it is. Literally dripping with oil, the Tuna is suspiciously similar to the kind that comes in cans. Overpriced and overrated.
