    It's my mommy's bday shortly, and we want to take her to the best seafood spot around.  Money isn't really a thang, nor is ambience really.  I dont want a shithole, but really just about the freshest, best prepared oceanic grub love.  itd b nice to impress cuz she is the best!

    I wish thinkin maybe aquagrill in soho, but there's probably better.  Ma loves salmon and sea bass.  more about fish than about shellfish.

    Help a cracker out!! thanks

    flex mussels is one of my favorite spots.  she loves the thai mussels.  but i'm thinkin something even nicer than flex for the bday.

    Thanks for the list.  any one in particular that is your favorite??

    i know how to search for seafood- i've done it, but just looking for someone that might have a strong recommendation for a spot to make mommy happy.

    i can't speak from firsthand experience, but my sister was at Le Bernardin for her boyfriend's birthday very recently and she was amazed. I was impressed considering she's no slouch when it comes to eating at good restaurants - she ranked it as one of the top 3 meals of her life.

    That's not to like, raise expectations/set impossible standards or anything. But if I had the money to blow and since I trust her, I'd give Le Bernardin a go. Fine dining, so put your jacket on.

    I think she meant BLT Fish, not Bit Fish.

    I want to go to Le Bernadin.

    I'd say go for Blu Water Grill. I had one of my sis' bday dinners and it was great. Nice restaurant for a special occaision and decent prices for seafood.

    Esca is a wonderful place for authentic Italian seafood.  The tasting menu with wine pairing is very enjoyable.  I am not sure why it doesn't have a Michelin star.  

    Now Le Bernardin has no less than 3 Michelin stars, and there can be no doubt in mind that it deserves all of them!  Highly recommend like almost everyone else.

    If you like sushi, I have gushed a bit in the past about Sushi Yasuda.  It's the best I have ever had, and the prices are actually reasonable!

    As for Mary's Fish Camp, I would say keep on walking.  I was pretty disappointed there.  Fish is much better and not nearly as well acclaimed.
