New York City Italian Seafood Paradise - Marea NYC

Central Park South high-end seafood restaurant Marea means “tide” in Italian, and its main ambition is to redefine your experience of high-end Italian cuisine of coastal Italy by serving the freshest and most seasonal fish and shellfish sourced from both the Mediterranean and waters worldwide.

Chef Michael White offers seafood selections devoted to crudo, a wide variety of raw oysters, clams and antipasti. And Marea’s wine list is equally impressive: 750 selections with fifty percent of its wine list dedicated to European whites to pair with your fresh fish and other seafood dish options.

The restaurant recommends the US$99 four course prix-fixe menu, which consists of a choice of crudo, oysters or antipasto, pasta, meat or fish, and dessert. Lobster burrata, fusili with octopus and bone marrow, and the steak are among delicious stand-alone dinner options, but you cannot go wrong with any appetizer or main course selection at this two star Michelin restaurant.

The restaurant recently joined the family of Relais & Châteaux’s elite group of Grande Chef Gourmand - an association of the world’s finest hoteliers, chefs and restaurateurs that has set the standard for excellence in hospitality.

The premium food, service and wine at Marea comes at a cost, but the price is worth every penny.
