They have several locations in NYC and I went to the one on the Upper East Side at 242 E. 81st near 2nd Avenue.
This place has a very casual New England maritime style interior. They specialize in typical Maine cuisine of lobster, shrimp, and crab rolls. They also serve Maine Roots Sodas and various Maine microbrews.
Me and my BF got the Noah's Ark for $38
2 half lobster rolls
2 half crab rolls
2 half shrimp rolls
2 Maine sodas
|mostly eaten shrimp roll, lobster roll, crab roll|
Each roll is packed with seafood. Only a little bit of mayo, lemon butter, and special spices are added. The roll is also nicely toasted and it compliments the seafood nicely.
My favorite was the crab roll. I think it had the best flavor of all the seafood options.
-Then later in the day we went to Torishin, a Japanese yakitori place at 1193 1st Avenue (bt. 64th & 65th St.)
This has been one of the best meals I've had in the city so far. Torishin has one Michelin star and has been recommended by the Michelin guide for three years. I think this is the first restaurant I have ever tried with this rating and I wasn't disappointed.
We each got the Omakase which is the chef's tasting menu. It is a bit pricey at $55 per person but it is so worth it for a special occasion. I left absolutely stuffed. Everything was delicious.
here is what it includes:
The chef picks the types of meat and veggies so you aren't sure what you'll get exactly.
It was kinda dark in Torishin, so the photo quality isn't very good. Here are some things we ate:
