Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants: Located on a bustling corner of West Fourth, this sunny, glass-walled spot serves seafood so fresh, you'll think you're on the Maine coast. A mixed crowd of local regulars, NYU kids with the parents' weekend set, and displaced New Englanders convene for Mary's always stellar catch of the day. The miniscule kitchen turns out crowd-pleasers like lightly battered fried shrimp, lobster knuckles with drawn butter, pan-seared Atlantic salmon, and plate after plate of plump lobster rolls. Reservations are not accepted and the lines are nearly always out the door, so it's worth arriving early to stake a claim on a prime table. Mary's Brooklyn Fish Camp is in Park Slope -- it's big and beautiful, with a back garden and the exact same menu.
Local Expert Maria Lisella Says:
Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants: "On Tuesdays, the oyster of the day is served by the half dozen for a song -- just a few bucks more than what most New Yorkers spend on a cup of coffee."
Best for Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants Because: Mary's serves the freshest fish this side of Bar Harbor, and recently opened a second locale in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood
