    Soft opening, awaiting liquor license. Regionally sourced foods (smoked and cured fish, cheese, olives, etc) to complement the white wine / sherry menu. From former GMs of Torrisi & Parm.

    New place on Ave B serves specialty tins of select fish and seafood in seasoned oils. Comes with warm pitas and butter for dipping and sharing - fantastic. I labeled the tins for the curious.

    If you don't know about the delicacy of fine imported canned seafood, go here and get educated. Sit outside on a warm afternoon. Great wines by the glass and craft brews. Also good house made snacks.

    Pay your respects to the Life Cafe menu hanging in the bathroom. (“Life Cafe” was in this spot from 1981 - 2011)

    Go with one or two friends and order the $50 big board to split a feast of cured meats, preserved fish, cheese, and accompaniments. Canned seafood is also high quality and reasonably priced.

    One of my favorite places in the East Village! Go for the house wine w/ sardines and octopus!! And the soundtrack is a plus.

    I'm impressed. The lobster is fresh, not smothered under too much mayo, and the roll is crunchy and soft. One of the best lobster rolls I've had.

    Top-notch beer selection. Great place for when you're in the mood for small bites. Very creative dishes. Another win for the east village.

    Great corner local bar with outdoor seating in the summer right on Tompkins Square park. Friendly staff, good small seafood plates menu and beer selection.

    The vibes. Shit's dope, especially in good weather. Margs are fire and beer cheese is on point.

    Great addition to Tompkins Sq. Cozy atmosphere and a great selection of unique beers as well as wine and lots of delicious small plates.

    Everything is in a bottle or can which is preferable. I don't wanna deal with some newbie bartender or spattering beer head giving me 1/3 froth on a 10 dolla beer. xoxo, Beer Grrrl

    I am not here to eat tinned seafood. I am here to drink. I love it so if you enjoy tinned seafood you’re *really* going to love it.

    This place is generally quite full of energy. They also have a fun rum and fresh coconut drink that is fun.

    Gluten-free cider when you're not in the mood for wine. The Sherry and vermouth were a bit too sweet for my taste.

    Nice for a glass of dry white in the afternoon, but avoid during peak times-crowded and too small.
