Hg2 : The Hedonist

Lure Fishbar

It might be too high-falutin’ for the Skipper, but Thurston Howell III would definitely dig the gleaming galley-style tables, cushy captain’s chairs, deck-plank floors, and porthole windows in this recreated yacht-like interior of sleek-but-kooky little Lure Fishbar. But eye-catching décor gimmicks aside (and the unfortunate acoustics that go with it),

Lure is serious about fish – apparent in even the cocktails, like the Bloody Mary Royale, which comes with both a chunky piece of shrimp and an oyster shooter on the side. Just ask New York magazine’s Grub Street gourmand Josh Ozersky: “Lure [is] the most underrated good restaurant in town. After Le Bernardin, it’s my go-to choice for seafood.”

Head down to the subterranean SoHo locale for seafood “plateaus” (aka, towers) from the overflowing raw bar, steamed red snapper in an eye-opening red-curry broth with jasmine rice, and striped bass sautéed with Manila clams, spicy chorizo, potatoes, and artichokes.
