NY Mag says:

With its curtained façade, simple décor, and affordable menu, Sel de Mer reminds us of another Brooklyn seafood bistro: the original La Bouillabaisse during its Atlantic Avenue heyday. The tabs here are kept delightfully low for meals showcasing generous portions of fresh seafood in imaginative preparations that change daily, like halibut served over coconut-milk-creamed spinach with crispy potatoes ($14), and a curried grouper ($15) that chef-owner Jeff Slagg dreamed up on a stroll down East 6th Street. There are three versions of moules-frites, and a selection of whole fish of the day. But the best deal might be the pair of so-called fish-cake sliders: two hefty hake burgers on toasted English muffins, served with a mound of cole slaw and the expectation that you’ll need a doggy bag ($16).

Time Out says:

If a trip to Maine isn’t in the cards, head to this quaint Williamsburg eatery to satisfy your fish-shack fix. Traditional coastal fare—buttery fish-and-chips, steamed mussels, and oysters on the half shell—is so fresh, dishes need little more than salt or vinegar to complement their flavors. More composed items like fishcake sliders (breaded patties of cod and hake served on English muffins), and a robust cured trout and arugula salad mark this sea-side wannabe as more ambitious than anything you’d find along a New England dock.

    This was a nice place. Even the hipsters on the stools at the humble bar were no-attitude and friendly. The food was wonderful, the waitstaff attentive and pleasant. A little gem in the former Italian Willy-B, with a laid back nautical theme.
