There are many who claim BlackSalt serves the best seafood in the city. The chef always seems to find new flavors, delving into whatever culinary pleasure one can ratchet out of a sole, skate or soft-shell crab. Smoky, buttery, minty – the shifting, innovative menu is typically spot on. Five-/seven-course tasting menus ($80/98) are also available.

If you can't get enough, BlackSalt doubles as a fish market, overflowing with fresh, organic sea creatures for cooking at home.
