Manhattan – Midtown East

Though chef-owner Ron Svenningsen used to be the cook at Marble Collegiate Church, dining at his restaurant isn"t quite a religious experience. Dishes include lobster rolls, fried clams, steamers and lobster "served in the rough," suggesting a Maine seaside shack; the maroon decor is more Corn Belt. During the week, there"s a pianist, and on weekends, a jazz singer. Some of the Maine native"s offerings make a pilgrimage worthwhile, especially the creamy, seafood-packed chowder and seafood crêpe.
