Lure Fishbar Restaurant Review

: Temptations of a voyage aboard a cruise ship in SoHo may lure you into a below-ground fish bar. Armed with saké and Bellini martinis, this yacht-like cabin with gleaming floors and leather furnishings helps cruise through a seafood journey captained by Josh Capon. Mirrors advertise American oysters and the sushi master resides in his pagoda, wooing appetites with artic char and kampachi (Japanese yellowtail). Golden heaps of lobster ride on crispy, garlic sourdough croutons and zesty calamari drown in a smoky lemon juice with a chili fish sauce. Steamed branzino is dressed pungently in a green coriander-basil pesto to travel gracefully with oyster mushrooms. Desserts are simple, such as the warm chocolate cake and apple crumble. Be warned that the stomach may not cooperate with unadorned tastes after the heady experience of zest, spice, citrus and tart flavors. Chef Capon teaches taste buds to sail through complex contrasts just as a ship masterfully traverses choppy waters.
