Joining mainstays like Pearl Oyster Bar, Mary's Fish Camp, and Mermaid Oyster Bar is a brand-new West Village seafood restaurant on Hudson Street. The chef-owner is Mike Price, a chef and partner at nearby Market Table, but there's no quinoa on this hearty menu (there is kale, but it's creamed). Instead, you'll find plenty of fried foods, like a belly-clam roll with lobster remoulade and clam-fried rice, as well as raw oysters and king crab claws. Take a look at a few of the dishes and the menu straight ahead and sit tight until Tuesday, January 21, when the restaurant officially opens.
