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. Journey up to the 2nd floor and watch an army of shuckers plating raw bar platters. 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. <br />We are the only NYC restaurant partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium so that every single item on the menu is sustainable and all of our practices are to better our oceans.

Somtum Der, Bangkok's most celebrated Isan (Northeastern Thai) restaurant has opened a branch in New York. It serves fiery papaya salads, bracing herbal broths and perfectly grilled beef with a level of authenticity hitherto unseen outside of Thailand.

"Food was good, though not outstanding. The dishes came out of kitchen haphazardly i.e several side dishes came out well before the main courses. Main courses came out at different times, so that some members of party of 4 had their food well before others."

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

"Innovative menu, but with limited choices. The food was quite good, and well prepared. The service was efficient and friendly. My principal issue is that the restaurant is in a very casual setting, and is immediately adjacent to Eli's marketplace, yet the prices are pretty steep for a restaurant of this sort. Many entrees are in the mid-to-high 30$ range. Perhaps this would explain why the restaurant had so many empty tables at 8:00 on a Saturday night.
Nonetheless, because of the quality of the food and service, I will likely go back again.

"My wife and I found the food and service to be quite good, although the food courses came out so quickly that we felt a little rushed. The restaurant was jumping on the Friday night we were there, and the noise level was far past energetic, making it difficult to hold a conversation without shouting."
