At BLT Fish, located in an elegant townhouse in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, savor all things seafood. The airy upstairs dining room is accentuated by a retractable glass roof and features a large open kitchen, allowing guests to catch a glimpse of our chefs preparing exceptional seafood.
BLT Fish offers a host of line-caught fish from around the world like wild Alaskan Halibut and New Zealand Pink Snapper. Drizzle seasoned sauces like Tomato-Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Caper Brown Butter over your catch and then select from delicious side dishes like Pommes Croquettes and Grilled Jumbo Asparagus with Fresh Lemon. For those diners who are seeking a “Not Fish” option the Chef provides roasted chicken or grilled strip steak.
The BLT Fish wine list has a two-part focus, it offers both in-depth selections of varietals, both red and white, that have an affinity for seafood, and all other wines are divided into aromatic and stylistic categories.
