Hi I am trying hard to find a seafood restaurant that open on Sat lunch time and they serve skate fish or monk fish? It was so difficult to search as most of them only open at night time. Any recommendation is appreciated! Many thanks!
My favorite seafood restaurant is Aquagrill. They're open for lunch on Saturdays. I don't see skate or monkfish on their regular menu. That's not to say they won't have daily specials. They do have Chilean sea bass, which is somewhat similar in texture.
Probably New York's finest seafood restaurant is Le Bernardin. They're open for lunch on Saturdays, and they serve both skate and monkfish.
I see monkfish on the regular Saturday menus of both Redeye Grill and Oceana; they might also serve skate as a special.
The Red Cat isn't a seafood restaurant, but they serve skate on their prix fixe Saturday menu.
Have a look at menupages.com. You can search by specific food, neighborhood, cuisine, etc., and read reviews and sample menus. I also recommend reading reviews on yelp.com because they seem to have more local contributors.
Also, a number of French bistros offer skate, including Balthazar, Artisanal, and DB Bistro Moderne. They're also all open for Saturday lunch.
Thanks very much for your recommendation. Let me search and see whether I can still make reservation on coming Sat? As seems most places are full this Easter weekend!!!
This Saturday might be tough. Opentable.com isn't showing anything available from this list. You might phone a few places and see what they can do. Or phone your hotel concierge and have them see what they can do for you.
Please post back with your results. I'm curious how you make out. Best of luck!
Try Oyster Bar Grand Central and Docks Oyster Bar (three locations) . They are both open Sat Lunch. The Oyster Bar has every kind of fush. Docks may or may not have monkfish and skate.
FISH not fush...
