Seafood

The sea foam green subway tile and nautical decor at this Gramercy joint are just playful enough for a restaurant that refers to itself as a crab shack, a name that usually conjures up cringe-worthy images of singing faux fish and netting abound. And the menu matches: fish, lobsters, oysters and crabs are so fresh they probably arrived that day, not long before they landed on your plate with coleslaw or gilled vegetables and a citrusy cocktail.
