Aquagrill, New York, NY

Aquagrill Restaurant Review

: Fresh seafood is served in this pastel hued dining room on a pleasant SoHo corner that feels like an update of a seaside restaurant (we like the shell-covered light fixtures). Appetizers include a chunky Maine lobster salad, spicy tuna tartare and an ever-changing selection of fresh Atlantic and Pacific Coast oysters. Pay attention to executive chef-owner Jeremy Marshall's specialties, particularly the grilled Atlantic salmon with a falafel crust and the plump seared sea scallops with Dungeness crab meat risotto; the kitchen's version of bouillabaisse is among the best this side of the City of Light. If you have a hankering for something more exotic, aim for Maine periwinkle in a lemon aïoli or sea urchins in a citrus soy sauce. Dieters can order just about anything grilled, poached or roasted. Desserts are rich and frivolous. The wine list is long on fish-friendly varieties.
