For fish with a vista closer to sea level than many of its competitors, The Fulton wins by a nautical mile. The Seaport restaurant has equally beautiful tableaus from its ground floor patio as its dining room upstairs. Its seafood-centric menu includes red snapper ceviche, grilled swordfish and black sea bass in surroundings that’ll tickle even longtime New Yorkers, especially with a glass of something sparkling.
In New York City, from river to glittering river, waterside restaurants and bars serve sensational seafood towers, lobster rolls, whole fish and all manner of grilled, fried and raw crustaceans, bivalves and fine filets. Although all present food with a view, some are better than others, and you’ll catch plenty of top marine-treats on terra firma, too. Whether they’re right on the city shore or landlocked downtown, these are NYC’s best seafood restaurants.
