Seafood: Regulars will tell you that the widest variety of oysters in the city can be found at Aquagrill, an unassuming corner spot in the SoHo. With bi-valves piled high atop the bar, and a seafood list nearly as tall as the stacks, Aquagrill is a high contender among many for best seafood restaurant in Manhattan.Tucked into the menu's "exotic" options, you'll find everything from periwinkles to sea urchin, in addition to old standbys like Maine crab claws and a two-tier seafood medley. Fresh fish is offered grilled, poached or roasted with a hefty selection of side dishes from snow peas to polenta.
Raw Bar: With a menu almost exclusively devoted to seafood, Aquagrill is an excellent pick for diners who want great choice and unparalleled options. Try lobster or salmon prepared to your specifications, or come early, eat oysters and people-watch. No matter what you do, save room for a perfectly prepared dessert. Locals also rave about Aquagrill's brunches, and single diners can get a great meal at the bar. TRAIN: C, E to Spring St
