Fatty Crab serves Malaysian inspired cuisine, pulling from the fares of other Southeast Asian countries while using western style techniques. The locally sourced menu items are rotated seasonally and all the condiments and pastes are made fresh, from scratch. Classic dishes such as the Beef Short Rib Rendang, Pork and Watermelon Salad, Fatty Duck and Chili Crab are year-round staples. The highly received wine list is designed to pair with the robust and spicy flavors of Malaysian cuisine, while the cocktail list includes selections suited for the most demanding cocktail aficionado. Fatty Crab has locations in New York’s West Village and St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. For more information and hours of operation, please call 212-352-3592 or visit www.FattyCrab.com

Located just 20 feet from the Hudson River and midway between the George Washington Bridge and Lincoln Tunnel, HAVEN Riverfront Restaurant and Bar is a cornerstone of the new Edgewater Harbor development. HAVEN features extraordinary Manhattan skyline views; Modern New American cuisine with classic roots; a comfortably chic aesthetic; outdoor seating; and a lively bar scene presenting a well-balanced mix of classic and contemporary cocktails. Executive Chef Peter Larsen's menus balance local seasonal ingredients, bright but complex flavors and seasoning, and creative, modern technique. Chef Larsen is a graduate of the Royal Culinary Academy of Copenhagen, Denmark. Most recently, he held the positions of Executive Chef at The Goodwin (which he opened) and Artisanal (both in Manhattan). The team that made 3Forty Grill a success -- owner Jerry Maher and partner Kerri-Ann Sweeten -- are committed to bringing the same passion to HAVEN. They look forward to greeting you!

"Just when I thought I had tried all of the top Sushi spots in the city...I find Neta! Everything from cocktails to service was top notch. Oh and did I mention the amazing Sushi? You must do the Omakase and ask for a table at the bar in front of the sushi masters!!"

Crave Fishbar is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Midtown Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.
