After seeing the amazing Judith Light in a mesmerizing one-woman performance in All the Ways to Say I Love You at the Lucille Lortel theatre, we stopped by the lively Seabird for a bite to eat. Judith Light deserved an Obie for her performance; catch it if you can.
At Seabird on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Washington Place, we shared the octopus fritter ($14 for four) drizzled with both a curry aioli and a black squid ink sauce on a bed of shredded fresh carrots and julienned beets. Interesting concept, but I would suggest ordering only if you like fried balls of dough. There wasn’t much or the eight-armed mollusk in them.
The teriyaki chicken sandwich on a soft bun with lettuce, tomato and some lemon-mayo served with fries was fine, especially with the friendly service.
A decent Med-American bistro to stop at, if in the hood.
