Lamia's Fish Market
47 Avenue B | (212) 777-3650
"There is no lack of reclaimed wood-clad eateries and self-consciously disheveled dive bars populating the East Village in New York City. But a two-story, immersive seafood restaurant, whose every nook and cranny surrounds you with aquatic splendor, is a rarer occurrence. Lamia’s Fish Market, on a stretch of Avenue B between Third and Fourth Streets, is a fresh counterpoint to the downtown scene’s rampant hipness. The creation of restaurateur Lamia Funti, the spot nods to her Mediterranean background and style of eating, with a menu including whole fish baked in salt (served tableside with mallets for diners), squid ink noodles with sea urchin and a 12-seat raw bar boasting a daily selection of oysters and ceviche." - Elle Decor
