The Sea Fire Grill - New York
The team behind Benjamin Steakhouse branches out into the seafood landscape, aiming to offer the same quality in fish and shellfish as it does with prime steaks.
The Sea Fire Grill is located in Midtown East and is in close vicinity to Grand Central Station. It showcases locally sourced, contemporary American seafood in a setting that's chic and modern without going overboard on decor. The dining room boasts an energetic bar, elegant dining rooms featuring a roaring fireplace, and dark walnut wine racks throughout the space.
For a great selection of Sea Fire Grill's raw bar offerings, order the seafood sampler, which includes clams, shrimp, oysters and lobster. There's also plenty to choose from on the appetizer menu, from cornmeal-crusted calamari to Madagascar garlic prawns.
Entrees range from fresh-catch seafood such as American red snapper and blackened Montauk swordfish to a number of prime, dry-aged steaks. Of course, "surf & turf" comes highly recommended. High on the list is the dry-aged filet mignon accompanied by one and one-half pound of steamed lobster.
