The understated space is warm and inviting, with black and white tiled floors, a raw bar, and a marble bar. Up front, Vinny Milburn is in charge of the market featuring fresh locally-sourced seafood and in the back Adam Geringer-Dunn runs the kitchen. The bar features a handful of craft beers and a small, but lovingly-curated selection of wines that pair well with oysters and the other light fare on the menu. You won’t find a better lobster roll anywhere in New York.
The seafood is “fresh, fresh, fresh” at this “combo” fishmonger/dinette in Greenpoint where the “interesting” menu features “terrific” raw-bar eats, “delicious” fish tacos and one “fantastic” lobster roll; despite “tiny” digs with “not much” atmosphere, it’s still “packed” at prime times.
Fronted by green awnings, and flooded with light, this corner gem is equal parts sustainably sourced fish market and fantastic eat-in spot. Walk past iced specimens to claim a seat at the white marble counter; then dig into the day’s catch dressed-up with global influences. New England clam chowder is given the classic treatment, while grilled sea bass skewers are accompanied by a Thai coconut-and-peanut dipping sauce
If you like seafood, then G’Point Fish and Lobster will be your new favorite restaurant. We were pretty blown away by how awesome all the food was, from the oyster prep, to the mussels, fish stew, solid fish tacos, and the best damn lobster roll we’ve had in NYC not named Luke’s.
