Quiet as an octopus scooting along the ocean bottom, Wild Edibles stuffed a mini eat-at counter and eight two-top tables into its small seafood shop on a Third Avenue stretch lusting for really good grub. Shimmeringly fresh skate and highly respectable crab cakes emerged from the same chefs who prep the ready-to-eat carryout for Wild Edibles fans in the Grand Central food halls. I got an excited call from an East Thirties resident foodie, who has talked her way into a friends-and-family night. Days later, I scored a table to share linguine alle vongole (cockles, Manila, and littleneck clams). There was no lobster roll that night. “Lobsters weren't good enough today,” we were told. But fish and chips hit the spot. And the skate in mustard sauce was outstanding. Given your hunger, you can select a fish or crustacean from the menagerie on ice to be roasted. Or stop for an appetizer: a dozen varieties handpicked by Edibles oyster guru every morning. Choose stalwarts from New England, Canada, and the West Coast, or mix them up with four pours of beer or white wine from a national list.
