I have been going through a West Village phase lately. I love that the restaurants and bars have so much character. Like Mary’s Fish Camp. The food is superb, but really what you’re going for is the colorful space: a charming little restaurant with blackboard menus written in pastel chalk, Christmas lights lining the window panes, and an eccentric staff dressed in red and white stripes.
As for the food, the restaurant really stays true to its hipster New England concept. I had been craving seafood all week, and it goes without saying that at Mary’s Fish Camp, they do seafood creatively and well. We began our night with some fresh and tasty oysters and clams.
And they did…interesting things to the Red Snapper ($23), which came baptized in a tortilla/hominy cilantro broth. I can’t say I loved the dish (the cilantro was a little overwhelming), but I appreciated the experimentation.
:) Thank you Mary.
