The antithesis of fancy-schmancy spots like Nobu and Soho House to your south, head north to this seafood shack-meets-dive-bar-meets-biker-hangout with a parking lot that turns into a sea of motorcycles every weekend. Its deep fryer stays perennially busy with platters of fried fish, shrimp, scallops, calamari, and clams, all served with a side of fries for good measure. If breaded stuff cooked in a vat of oil isn’t your thing, go for a seared ahi plate, a bucket of peel and eats, or a garden salad, if you must, but at least wash it down with a beer for God’s sake.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome.
