Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill
A newly opened offshoot of the eponymous oyster bar in London, this Bentley’s marks a return of Irish chef Richard Corrigan to his native turf. (You may glimpse his burly, gregarious presence in the blue-and-white dining room with its mezzanine raw bar; he sometimes makes appearances.) Fish in all guises is the main event here, and the menu ranges from the luxurious to the simple and honest (three courses here may set you back as little as $40 or as much as $110). The risotto with wild Irish cockles and mussels is a standout choice; so is the baby squid stuffed with chorizo and organic feta. And for those after more humble fare (and prices), the fish and chips plate is both excellent and big enough for two.
