Known to attract the city's most unabashed of preps, this Carnegie Hill restaurant sports nautical décor, and serves fresh, in-season eats. Lobster and seafood dishes (clam chowder and the daily catch) are featured prominently on the menu, in addition to a long list of salads and pastas. What’s more, the atmosphere is so relaxing (“nicely situated away from the hustle and bustle of mid-town,” says Kelsey Banfield) that you’ll want to stay for dessert. “I occasionally indulge in the toasted brioche ice cream sandwich with caramel sauce. In fact, I love it so much that I included the recipe in my cookbook!” says Banfield.
