Crave Fishbar - Midtown

Seafood
Crave Fishbar Midtown is a vibrant, convivial restaurant in Manhattan serving an inspired seafood menu from chef Todd Mitgang. An eclectic mix of reclaimed materials and custom made chairs and tables lend a beachy, rustic feel to the space, which houses a 25-foot-long bar where guests can order from the full dinner menu along with cocktails and wine from a mounted bottle display. Journey up to the 2nd floor and watch an army of shuckers plating raw bar platters. Approachable, sophisticated dishes feature local seafood, crudos, and meat dishes that are thoughtfully prepared with both familiar and exotic ingredients. Crave Fishbar has taken its place as a neighborhood fixture, providing locals and newcomers alike with a elegant, inviting experience.
We were the first NYC restaurant partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium so that every single item on the menu is sustainable and all of our practices are to better our oceans.

we sat upstairs, very socially distanced from other tables and the noise level minimal, a relief! Service was a bit slow but the waiter was very good, just doing what appeared to be double or triple-duty. W e had fluke and salmon dinners--excellent. Good cocktails. Calamari appetizer was just okay. I would definitely return

Great spot, wonderful seafood: calamari, lobster curry, shrimp with black squid linguini, all delish. Tip: dine on the terrace only 4 tables separated by plexi and heated.

We sat inside in the back and there was only one other two top seated. Excellent spacing for social distancing. Even in these crazy COVID times, they honored their daily oyster happy hour! Choices were more limited but we were thrilled to partake in our favorite local HH. The server could not have been nicer as well.

Since Crave is not open yet on the Upper Westside, we decided to take the 2 mile walk to the midtown location. Worth ever step!

We love the food, people, management, etc. A regular for us on the UWS. Can't wait for the reopening (we hear before the holidays) on the UWS.

Always my go to spot for fresh fish with unusual preparation. The best calamari ( pan dusted) . We had the lobster curry and shared it. A must have if you like a Thai style curry.
Highly recommend. And outdoors upstairs is great

The food was on point as always, they have a reduced menu and it’s understandable due to the pandemic but the flavors, quality and freshness was the same as I remember the last time I dine there. Great job.

This was a great experience. Perfect merging of neighborhood pub and fancy restaurant. The oysters were salty, briny deliciousness. The fish tacos were amazing. Everything was really terrific. The martinis were cold and perfect.
