As much a drinks hub as a restaurant (owners have wisely realized why most people come to the LES at night), this Nantucket-style seafood spot's brief menu is a pleaser. Briny steamers taste and smell of the sea, and the lobster roll -- good, though not the best in town -- arrives headlined by two huge chunks of claw. There are oysters of the day, and even grilled oysters - a must-get if available, buttery and topped with breadcrumbs. The cheese plate is a nice foil to all this rich sea-flesh. Wash all this down with a glass of rose or a well-made cocktail, and it’s the beginning of a pretty good night.
