Crave Fishbar is one of the most consistent spots on the Upper East Side, which is why its second location is very good news for people of the UWS. The Upper West Side version has a bigger space but a very similar menu as the original - lots of options for people who love seafood, don’t love seafood (get the cavatelli or fried chicken), and everyone in between. Important: for dessert, their cookie that comes with vanilla ice cream is one of the greatest cookies in the entire city. Crave is a real utility spot - a situational catch-all in an area that could use more of them.
