The Ketch, New York, NY

The Ketch Restaurant Review

: Known widely amongst the Wall Street set, this restaurant elevates the standard seafood staples. The wine list better serves those who have some cash to burn; that said, the whites are more wallet-friendly and pair best with most of the dishes. The humble crab cake is kicked up a notch with a jalapeño and panko crust, served alongside a black bean salsa. Passion fruit-glazed-salmon salad is accented with toasted walnuts and the tang of blue cheese crumble. Porcini-dusted day boat scallops are a highlight among entrées, as is blackened mahi mahi with toasted cumin. Desserts are the average crowd-pleasers, a chocolate cake here, a fruit tart there.
