Cape House is a seafood shack in East Williamsburg/Bushwick. There are cocktails on tap, lots of wine and beer options, and of course, seafood. You’ll find everything from raw bar to clam strips to market vegetables here, with the occasional random Korean or Thai ingredient mixed in. They’re open all year, but the best time to visit is when it’s warm, and you can sit with a big group at one of the picnic tables outside.

The Mermaid Inn
A staple in the Infatuation playbook since back in 2003 when we were standing in line outside of terrible Manhattan night clubs and listening to nothing but Brand New and 50 Cent. The fish here is always fresh and fantastic, and the lobster roll is very solid.
It is no understatement to say that Catch is the most over-the-top, ridiculous dining operation the Meatpacking District has ever seen. Thankfully though, the service is fantastic, and the food is pretty great as well, despite the absurdity of it all.
A cocktail bar that specializes in oysters, and has a very solid burger. Sel Rrose isn't our favorite oyster hangout, but it's definitely one you should know about.
