Don't be fooled by the Dr. Seuss-inspired moniker; this seafood restaurant is definitely for adults. Located steps from Mount Sinai Hospital, one fish two fish is packed with doctors and medical students by day. However, once the sun goes down it transforms into a neighborhood nightspot, complete with bouncer, DJ and stretch Humvees parked outside its glass doors. The nautically themed interior is deliriously tacky; a large wooden steering wheel decorate the walls. The menu is equally obvious: Dishes like jumbo shrimp cocktail, fried calamari and fish and chips rarely rise above serviceable, mainly because they lack the freshness found at more upscale eateries. But one fish two fish survives and thrives due to its location. Not only does it provide a swankier alternative to the fast-food joints and diners that pepper the southern edge of Spanish Harlem, it's the only place in the area that stays open past 10pm. Throw in all-you-can-eat salads and free garlic bread at dinner, a weekday happy hour with complimentary hors d'oeuvres, live jazz on Sundays and a happening, multicultural singles scene after midnight, and you'll forgive your lobster for tasting a bit fishy.Happy Hour
