Cuisine: Seafood. Price: $$$. Location: Manhattan, Flatiron.

This spot from April Bloomfield in The Ace Hotel is the quintessential English seafood restaurant. Like all of Bloomfield’s restaurants, it’s a complete triumph and is the ultimate go-to for a nautical aesthetic and delicious seafood fare like scallops, oysters and crudo.
