Astoria Seafood is fun, unique, and very busy. It’s a fish market/restaurant where you pick what you want and specify how you’d like it cooked. There’s a big selection of fish and shellfish, and you’ll wind up paying less than you do at a traditional restaurant. It’s also BYOB, although you might have to drink your wine out of a small plastic cup.

North River Lobster Co.
The food at North River Lobster Co. is regrettably mediocre. Then again, we never expected more from a floating restaurant in the middle of Midtown fart-tastic touristville.
Crave Fishbar’s second location on the UWS is larger than the original UES spot and works for nearly every situation.
Cull & Pistol
Cull & Pistol is our new favorite destination in Chelsea Market. Say what you will about the crowds, but this is as good as workday eating probably gets.
