Back in 2008, Crave Ceviche Bar was one of the victims in that crazy crane accident. Now Brian Owens and chef Todd Mitgang are back, with Crave Fishbar, located on Second Avenue across the street from the original Crave. Some favorite dishes will make a return, including spicy tuna on plancha, and grilled yucca with lime butter and toasted nori. There’s also new grub, including a vinegar-fried Amish chicken leg and house-smoked bluefish with butter lettuce, carrots, and dill. The 60-seat restaurant opens tonight for dinner, with lunch following soon.
