A new seafood restaurant called The Boilery just had its soft open on Monday at 710 Amsterdam between 94th and 95th Streets. It’s got a wide array of seafood and some grilled specialties for non-seafood lovers. Hector F. went on the first night and sent in this report: “Enjoyed their catch of the day: succulent lobster tails served inside a seafood boil bag, potato slices and corn on the cob all bathed in simmering spices of garlic, lemon, and old bay seasoning. Fish tacos and blue point oysters were also pretty good.” See the menu here. The shrimp cocktail promises to be “extra colossal” and goes for $14. There’s also clams, mussels, snow crab legs and more.

Something is once again opening on the corner of 96th Street and West End Avenue, the mysterious spot where a beloved deli once stood. Restaurants have seemed to open and close in that spot in a matter of days. It’s not yet clear if it will be the return of Super Taco (which sounds like a comic book name!) or another restaurant. Stay tuned! Thanks to Paul for the tip.
