It's become common knowledge – even away from food world – the earth's oceans have declining stockpiles of our favored fishes. Soon, we might visit a future without any bluefin tuna, salmon or any other high-end fish that America and also the remaining developed world (especially Japan) has come to adore. That is the thesis behind Seamore's, an ever-expanding seafood restaurant in Ny that's recently opened its sixth location, this time around in the Brookfield Mall.
Founded by Michael Chernow in the summertime of 2020, Seamore's is renowned for excellent, healthy and delicious seafood. The concept behind this restaurant empire is that the fish is 100% sustainable, sourced as close by as you possibly can. Michael's goal ended up being to create restaurants that were approachable, comforting, and delicious, yet still be environmentally sound.
Having dined in their original location in Nolita, I knew what to anticipate: fresh fish, inventive combinations of flavor, personable staff and charming décor. And that is exactly what I discovered in their newest location, in Battery Park City. Stepping into the restaurant, I had been immediately struck both by its nod to the sea and how chic the area was.
As for that food, the portions were large and most importantly, of top quality. We started with scallop crudo served with crispy plantains, avocado, lime, salsa verde along with a tune poke with ponzu, peanut and avocado. The scallope was a flavorful dish, executed carefully and precision. We loved the acidity and obvious freshness of the plate. As the tuna evoked Thailand, both dishes were perfect representations from the thought and care the restaurant applies to its dishes.
Moving to the mains, we loved the idea of the Reel Deal, a build-your-own fish dish served with sustainably caught fish and four choices for sauce. Here, we had monkfish having a miso butter sauce that paired perfectly with the delicate, flaky nature of the fish. We loved the blackened shrimp tacos, that was served with molé blanco, avocado, queso fresco, jalape~no aioli.
In the final analysis, Seamore's is obviously doing something right; on the night my guest and I were there, it was a crowded room. You'll love the many fish selections, the great cocktail program, the seasoned and friendly staff and the excellently prepared dishes. Book your table today!
