Every year, Avenue brings collectively a group of culinary experts to rank the highest restaurants within the city in a wide range of categories. And it’s. The interior has cooly contrasting black curtains and white tablecloths that give off a supremely elegant advantageous-dining vibe, and the food contains often rotating dishes like white beetroot baked in clay with smoked mackerel, and Yorkshire grouse with lemon thyme & brioche.
The final operable salt-cod fishing ship, the Sherman Zwicker (inbuilt 1942), now serves as an oyster bar docked at Hudson River Park’s Pier 25. As befits a maritime restaurant, the menu highlights sustainable, wild-caught seafood overseen by executive chef and avid fisherman Kerry Heffernan.
The small, minimalist dining room plays backdrop to latter-day interpretations of Pacific Islander classics (pork belly comes with its adobo poured table facet; the pinakbet — traditionally a vegetable stew — is a rigorously constructed plate of seasonal vegetables atop a cool demi-glace known as bagoong).
