Its hard to get more stylish than the fashionistas prowling the trendy streets of SoHo, but Lure Fish Bar’s chic, ultra-modern interior comes close. The glitzy subterranean eatery has the feel of a superbly appointed yacht cabin, with a ships distinctively curved ceiling, sensual low lighting, slick, circular leather booths and round, nautical-style windows, ideal for peering up at the elegant heels of the pedestrians on the sidewalk above.

The Menu: As the name and the unmistakably seaworthy decor suggest, Chef Josh Capons menu is heavy on seafood, with starters like New England clam chowder, niçoise salad, garlicky lobster croutons and tuna tiraditos in snappy ginger vinaigrette. Notable entrées include mahi mahi tacos in a crispy tortilla shell, an abundant serving of steamed mussels in lemon and white wine and a whole daurade accompanied by dill gnocchi. Theres also top-flight sushi, sashimi, and tempura and a winning raw bar spanning both coasts.

The Must Have: While youre almost obligated to order at least one item thats sprung from the sea (the nautical theme is practically daring you not to), you wont be disappointed by sticking closer to shore, either. Lures best-kept secret is a sophisticated burger thats a take on the infamous patties at the In-N-Out chain on the West Coast. Its served on a brioche and is actually more delicious than the better-known burger at Fanellis across the street.

Chic Eats – Cafeteria – New York Restaurants – on Voyage.tv



Visit http://voyage.tv/ for the best HD travel videos in the world.

Open 24 hours, seven days a week, Cafeteria has been a much-hyped celeb haunt since it open in 1998 and continues to offer the best in free New York entertainment: people watching. The owners goal is simple enough: to provide guests with a feel-good dining experience: gourmet comfort food served in a sophisticated atmosphere, available round the clock. Whether you visit at brunch, lunch, dinner or after a night out, you can relax at a table outside, or cozy up by candlelight indoors.

The Menu: Boasting upscale American comfort cuisine, Cafeteria serves everything from eggs to sandwiches to salads. Hearty entrées like meatloaf and fish and chips are balanced out by lighter continental favorites like grilled chicken paillard or atlantic salmon. Classic American desserts with indulgent extras are impossible to resist, such as deep fried oreos or the waffle banana split. Cocktails include the passion fruit caipirinha, the blackberry cardamom margarita and our favorite, the Inferno Bloody Mary, made with jalapeno vodka that’s sure to cure a hangover.

The Must-Have: After an epic night out, the only thing standing between you and your bed should be a plate of fried chicken and waffles. You’d be silly not to order the Mac Attack (a tasting of three different mac n cheeses), and while youre at it, a side of truffle parmesan fries. After all, its been a long night.
