In New York City, one might pick a lobster out of a tank or fish items from a hot bar on the regular, but Astoria Seafood, actually located nearby in Long Island City, ticks DIY dining up a bit. Peruse and choose from tons of items like shark, shrimp, snapper and sardines, pick a preparation like fried or sautéed, and enjoy the fresh catch. The spot is popular for its quality, unique guest experience and BYOB policy, so you may need to strategize your seating arrangement.
