When it opened, Marea was immediately acclaimed as one of the most original and consistently wonderful upscale Manhattan restaurants in recent memory. This very handsome establishment on Central Park South, in a sunny dining room that long housed San Domenico, specializes in exquisitely fresh fish and shellfish in Italian-inspired preparations (including the crostini with lardo and sea urchin, which caused waves of buzz at the time and has since become one of the city’s "checklist" dishes, and fusilli with octopus and bone marrow) by skilled chef and restaurateur Michael White.   — Allison Beck

Michael White knocks it out of the park at his high-end Italian seafood spot. Go big on the crudo, followed with pasta and whatever fish they're most excited about that day. [Eater 38 Member]
