Oceans of seafood in Manhattan

Manhattanites are being treated to a taste of the sea with the opening of new Italian restaurant, Marea, where the menu draws on the coastal cuisine of the regions. Chef Michael White and restauranteur Chris Cannon are well-placed to deliver a stellar dining experience, with two successful ventures- Alto and Convivio- already under their belts.

The space has been designed by Franco Rossignolo, and emulates that of a luxury yacht- with wall-mounted silver-dipped sea shells reminding you of the shoreline theme. You'll eat seated on Italian leather, surrounded by lacquered Indian rosewood beside a bar made from honey onyx, taking in Stefano Scheda's high-gloss photography. All a little opulent for your tastes? Retire to the informal lounge seating or the crudo bar or splash out on the 8-seat tasting room complete with chef's demo kitchen.

Onto the menu- and it's pretty darn fishy! Luckily it's also fresh and seasonal- and offers everything from light bites to three-course feasts. Pasta is a house speciality, with 14 varieties to choose from, not to mention whole fish, crudo, antipasti and a selection of meat dishes. We reckon you're best sticking with the seafood, though- try Barbara sea urchin with lardo, Lobster with burrata and eggplant funghetto, Seaweed-marinated East Coast halibut, or Sea scallops with endive and bagna cauda. To drink? You're spoilt with over 300 wine selections- the European whites complement the seafood particularly well.
