My friend said she wanted to try Mary’s Fish Camp in the West Village, so we met there recently. It only has a few tables, and some counter seating. So if you decide to try it, go early as they don’t accept reservations.
I tried the red snapper pozole with fresh avocado, sprinkled with hominy ($28) and a side bowl of fresh jalapeños; my friend, the bouillabaisse ($32). To that we added shoestring crispy fries ($8) and honey, Siracha and lime Brussels sprouts ($8) with a covering of crumbed bacon and crispy onions.
The sides were worth going there for; the main dishes — although nicely seasoned — were pricey for what was served. With a serving of Sauvignon Blanc in a small juice glass ($13) plus a non-alcoholic drink ($4) to accompany our food, this meal cost each of us $50 before tip. That said, I would still recommend Mary’s Fish Camp if you’re in the area and in the mood for seafood.
