A lot of places in Hudson Yards seem to focus more on production value than what you’ll actually be eating, but that’s not the case at Mar (inside Mercado Little Spain), which has better and less expensive food than most of the other spots in the development. The focus is on seafood, with raw bar options, tapas, and some share plates, like really good paella with toasted pasta and cuttlefish. Sit at the bar or in one of the booths along the wall, and if you particularly enjoy any of the fish here, buy some more of it to-go from the on-site fishmonger.

Seamore's review image

The original Seamore's is in Nolita, and the Chelsea location is pretty much the same. Stop by for some casual seafood, maybe in your gym clothes.

Boqueria review image

The Flatiron location of this Spanish tapas chain has a casual space that’s good for groups.

Milos review image

Milos is a Midtown Greek restaurant specializing in fresh fish shipped in from the Mediterranean daily. It's pricey for dinner, but lunch is a steal.

Catch review image

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.
