NYC Restaurant Week: Lure Fishbar SoHo
Sales Manager by day, tech nerd and foodie by night, I’ve been with SinglePlatform since June of 2014. I guess it’s pretty perfect I work for a company that brings my two hobbies together; promoting a new technology that helps restaurants reach foodies like me by providing their number one asset across the web – their menu! I love keeping up with the newest trends in technology; yes, I’m that girl that religiously reads TechCrunch and Mashable. I’m also a complete foodie and everyone knows it; I love food. I love cooking it, eating it, and of course photographing it. I actually have a food blog and Instagram account to share my foodie adventures on, so feel free to check out and follow @big_city_eats.
Kicking off one of my favorite times of the year, Restaurant Week in New York City, a friend and I dined at Lure Fishbar in SoHo – and we didn’t leave disappointed.
First of all, the ambiance is incredible! The restaurant is located below street level, and when you walk in, it feels as if you were out at sea – the décor of the restaurant is that of a luxury yacht.
The décor was a close second, but my favorite part about my experience at Lure Fishbar was the quality of the food. Everything we ordered was fresh, flavorful and of course plated and adorned in a simplistic yet beautiful way. To start, we ordered a bottle of Pinot Bianco. Almost immediately, our bottle was brought to our table and poured for us by our waitress. Looking at the appetizers, our eyes were drawn to the deluxe seafood platter. Consisting of oysters, crab claws and shrimp, everything was flawlessly fresh and delicious. We also split the tuna tacos as they were recommended by many of my friends as a must have. My friends were 100% right; they were bite-sized and delectable, complimented by a soy vinaigrette, and filled with fresh tuna, avocado and cucumber.
For the main course, I could not decide between the halibut and the salmon, so my friend agreed to share both. Lucky me! Unfortunately, when we went to order, our waitress informed us the kitchen had just sold out of the salmon. I guess I have an excuse to go back to try it! We ended up ordering the Nori Crusted Salmon and the Fresh Baked Halibut, which both proved to be incredibly tasty and satisfying.
Overall, my friend and I were extremely happy with both the food and the service we received at Lure Fishbar, and will certainly be back again in the future.
