BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT - 1999
Oh, that oyster bar! Mountains of ice set with scads of gorgeous mollusks gathered from the world's bays--and there at the top, the hollow husks of some of the world's most magnificent lobsters. Yes, the world's. This new (and rich) kid on the block relies on an amazing infrastructure which gets critters out of far-flung waters and into its room-sized refrigerator in record time. The results are impressive, and the fun 1930s-jazz-on-the-QE2 environs don't hurt. So go crazy. Order a dozen oysters and a skate wing. You're Neptune on an expense account.
