Glass gets Shipwrecked in Midtown Manhattan at the Crave Fishbar

STOWED away on Second Avenue, and with a décor inspired by intricate tales of the nautical, Crave Fishbar is the kind of quintessentially quirky eatery New York is so famous for. Serving an array of locally sourced and sustainable seafood, the restaurant garnered a loyal following since its earlier incarnation Crave Ceviche Bar was once located across the road. Nowadays, a weekly Oyster Happy Hour trending under the tag #Oystergram keeps regulars returning as does the creative menu designed by executive chef Todd Mitgang.

One to catch is the Lobster chu chee curry. A rich broth with a generous portion of lobster with Thai apple eggplants, the sauce certainly packs a punch. The rice dusted point Judith calamari served with a miso paste and mung beans is also worthy of a special mention as was the Plancha Grilled Octopus served with Chinese broccoli. For the pescetarian adverse, don’t let the name fool you, with additions such as fried chicken on the menu, enough to entice any meat eater.
