MANHATTAN – ‘Feed me Seamore! Feed me all night long!’ Soon Upper East Siders will be singing like the man-eating plant Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors as Seamore’s Sustainable Seafood gets ready to open a brand new restaurant in Lenox Hill later this month, located near the corner of Third Avenue and East 72nd Street.
Late Friday, Seamore’s revealed it would be opening the new restaurant at 1278 Third Avenue for a soft launch from Thursday, December 30 through New Year’s Day— with walk-ins welcome from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm on those days.
Then, a few days later, on Tuesday, Janauary 4th, Seamore’s will begin daily dinner service. Reservations are already open to book through Open Table, so be sure to snag a time before they’re all filled up.
Brunch lovers will have to wait until the middle of next month, when brunch and lunch service starts on January 15th at 11:00 am.
While the menu for the new Seamore’s Upper East Side location hasn’t been released, it’s expected to be similar to the restaurant chain’s other locations— with a ‘fresh off the dock’ daily catch, oysters, fish tacos, sandwiches and decadent main dishes like lobster mac n’ cheese, moules frites and fish and chips.
Inside the fishmonger’s new Upper East Side digs, you’ll find large bright red neon fish on the wall— the Seamore’s logo— which lit up the bar area of the dark restaurant Friday night.
The rest of the restaurant brings much of the same Seamore’s vibe you’d find in the popular seafood spot’s other locations in Chelsea, Lower Manhattan, Nolita, and Dumbo— including pastel green and blue colors mixed in with natural wood and intricate tile work.
In a statement announcing the soft launch, Seamore’s says “we are so excited to join the neighborhood and spread our good vibes through fresh sustainable seafood, unique cocktails, plentiful oysters and much more! See you soon.”
They sure will.
