I could live on the uni and lardo ricci, perfect langostines or bone marrow and octopus fusilli. The choice and quality are staggeringly good. -Gail Simmons, Top Chef
Get the awesome, over-the-top "fusilli with octopus and bone marrow" at Marea. As seen on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations - Food Porn 2.
Order the now-famous fusilli with octopus & bone marrow or the spaghetti with sea urchin and crab. For those that don't like fish, the aged sirloin steak with bone marrow panzanella. [Eater 38 Member]
Two Michelin stars.
Michael White is knocking it out of the park with his high end Italian seafood spot.
On any given visit, you’ll see famous faces (as well as “upper-generation” folks) at Michael White’s restaurant. Order fusilli with red wine-braised octopus and bone marrow.
A sip from the aperitif and digestif trolley is the perfect start and finish to your incredible meal. - Inspector
Stunning setting for this great seafood themed restaurant right on Central Park South. Our picks? The octopus fusilli, dover sole or veal ravioli are all delicious

Fusilli with bone marrow and octopus is the call at Marea
Excellent, elegant Italian seafood and pasta in a casual setting near Central Park.
bone marrow pasta - it's fantastic
get the lardo and sea urchin crostini
You can’t get fresher seafood without rocks in your pockets. (But thanks for the offer, Micheletto.)
Try the Octopus Bone Marrow Fusilli
You should Sea Urchin. This is the best. Don't forget'
The fusilli with octopus and bone marrow was the best pasta dish I've ever had!
Everything. Especially the lobster with burrata and the steak.
When Chef Michael White turns his hand to seafood, the results are pretty much what you would expect: wholly satisfying, free of fussiness, but with just enough flourishes to make it special.
Just named Best New Restaurant at the James Beard Awards so reservations may be tight. But, it's worth the fuss to order fusilli with red wine braised octopus and bone marrow and eat at the bar.
Amazing veal chop. A must get.
Tasting menu all the way!
Just like everyone else I've gotta recommend the fusilli with bone marrow and octopus as well as the lobster with burrata.
Sugarbush is a fantastic mix of bourbon and maple syrup. Combine with some foie gras and Hawaiian swordfish and leave happy, or have the lobster ravioli and leave euphoric.
Everything here is amazing. Standouts: burrata w/ lobster, seafood risotto, fusilli w/ octopus, and the steak. Omg the steak.
Though any Italian will advise against mixing seafood and cheese, the lobster and burrata here is swoon-worthy.
Will cost you a months' rent or mortgage payment but worth every penny. Michael White is a master with pasta.
fusilli with grilled octopus and bone marrow is to die for!
One of the best for service and seafood. VERY impressive menu...a MUST.
Fusilli (w/ octopus and bone marrow)
OCTOPUS. (The appetizer, the fusilli). So delicious.
Grilled octopus appetiser was absolutely delicious!
Wonderful fancy lunch spot. We skipped on the pasta and had oysters, starters, scallops/halibut, and dessert, but all were superb.
Definitely the best Italian restaurant in New York :) all the dishes so good!
Highlights are the cuttlefish with bottarga, lobster and burrata, and the John Dory. Don't skip the olive bread either. – Green Guide Editor
If you love sea urchin then you must get the Ricci.
Perfect place to enjoy quality seafood, especially for families with kids :)
Worst stares restaurant I've been to. Super long wait, 20+ mins wait for 3 courses. Scallop over cook, mediocre pasta, bland octopus. Server does not explain dishes well. Very bad!
Comedian Eddie Izzard talked transvestitism, dieting, and being fearless over appetizers of Pacific snapper and tuna tartare at this mecca for Italian seafood on Central Park South.
