Marea Restaurant Review

: Part of Michael White's small restaurant empire of (mostly) Italian establishments, this spot on the southeast corner of Central Park is satisfying on many levels. White tossed his line in the water at his seafood-oriented Marea, and caught the big one. A meal might best be enjoyed with someone who has a healthy expense account, but it’s worth it; at times Marea’s menu is transcendent. Throw back the caviar and hard-to-find raw fish amid the crudos and dive into the Italian-accented seafood pastas: octopus-and-bone-marrow-laced fusilli is a meal in itself. Main courses might range from grilled swordfish with braised cabbage and green apples to roasted duck breast with a chestnut ragù, baby turnips and dried cherry. Guests can also compose a four-course prix-fixe menu ($99) or request a tasting menu with wine pairings. The wine list is extensive and offers some affordable selections. Desserts include lemon meringue and huckleberry-mint panna cotta.
