Having dinner at Pier 66 is like being transported to the seaside for a couple hours. With a seafood-only menu, this restaurant definitely has a taste of holidays.
The menu is short and sweet, and the waiter had a couple of daily specials to offer.
We started off by sharing the selection of sea platter and the homemade smoked fish – the house specialty. Both were nice and fresh although a bit pricey for sharing plates.
The scallops dish was delicious too. Cooked to perfection, the scallops were served with an interesting side of crispy spaetzel and green peas. The dish looked small at first but the scallops were actually pretty big and the plate quite filling.
With black & white floors and marble countertops Pier 66 is very elegant yet comfortable. The room caters to about 30 people which keeps it quite cozy. The service was attentive and friendly.
Whenever you have a grilled fish craving, think of heading to Pier 66. They also have a take out counter if you fancy trying their homemade smoked fish or other delicacies at home.
