Notable eats…Mary’s Fish Camp

A restaurant that began as reminiscence on childhood memories of a camp in Florida, Mary’s Fish Camp must have some of the most deliciously fresh and tasty seafood eats in Manhattan. The small and rather cramped little spot takes on a New England clam house type feel, but with the Greenwich Village ‘bohemian upscale’ touch. They offer the usual dishes like freshly delivered fish and lobster grilled or fried on request, oysters on the half shell, steamed clams and clam chowder, but with some interesting additions and a well-chosen wine list to match the fare. Lobster Pot Pie and Lobster Knuckles are two highlights, the former served in a soufflé dish with a broad pasty topping, and the latter served cold as an appetizer. The lobster rolls have a legendary following, and are probably delicious – if they’re still available when you get there. The restaurant isn’t a secret anymore. It did happen to be Valentine’s Day when we were there, but we put our name on the list and had a few drinks at nearby establishments before being seated - shortly under an hour and a half later!

Can't agree more. The food setting and service were amazing! The next best thing to a Maine seafood shack!
