New York Openings: La Marina, Crave Fishbar, Pier NYC

Few things are more disappointing than a bad seafood experience, especially when you’ve been primed by a waterfront location. We’ve all had the oily, overpriced, over-fried platters that mask questionable product and put a strain on the digestive system. Newcomers La Marina (pictured), Crave Fishbar, and Pier NYC make it easy to get fresh, great seafood without a haul to Long Island.

La Marina in Washington Heights serves up sick views of the G.W. Bridge, the unspoiled Palisades, and boat traffic from the banks of the Hudson. Surf and turf are on the menu, with fresh-shucked oysters, grilled lobsters, and steak a la plancha.
 
Crave Ceviche Bar gets a second lease on life at Crave Fishbar across the street. Faves like grilled yucca topped with spicy tuna carry over, joining new dishes like house-smoked bluefish with local radishes and dill. 
 
Pier NYC eliminates seafood-vs-barbecue debates by offering the best of both. For the former: raw bar, wild striped bass ceviche, crab cakes. On the pit side, John Brown Smokehouse star Josh Bowen brings killer brisket, house-cured pastrami, and pulled pork. The setting, on the Roosevelt Island waterfront, provides unparalleled views of the midtown skyline.
