    Both avant-garde and approachable, David Burke's take on seafood is nothing short of brilliant. Try the tacos, and don't skip dessert!

    Either dine downstairs in the casual bar area or upstairs in the more refined dining room/outdoor patio. Any of the lobster dishes are phenomenal but we have a soft spot for the lobster bisque.

    Try the The Burger

    The Corcoran Group · June 6, 2012

    This is yet another addition to David Burke’s culinary empire, though the first to focus on seafood. We can’t help but be charmed by the complicated dishes, vivid colors, and wacky art installations. Read more · January 20, 2012

    We whole-heartedly recommend the Montauk Lobster Roll - the spiced mayo really gives this Lobster Roll a special kick! And DON’T skip dessert.

    Their specialty desert: cheesecake lollipops are awesome. I'm not a fan of the bubblegum flavored whipped cream though.

    This is the one place you must leave some room for a sweet dessert. The cheesecake lollipop tree is waiting!

    A nice uptown dinner spot with a downtown-ish vibe. Nice place for a girls' night. The fish tacos are good!

    This place is great. Love the fish tacos and raw bar. Simply grilled fish with one of their delicious sauces is the way to go!

    Get the mussels for the first entree on the #nyrw menu. Were great on their own. No need for the sauce it came with! Enjoy

    Great food, great service. Sit downstairs-good energy. Request Jessica as your server. Get the Angry Tails appetizer & the taco special. Get a glass of Provocateur wine. Even the patrons are friendly.

    Basically... the only thing good here is the jalepeno cornbread. Food sucked, service sucked, overcharged... Abysmal. Avoid.
