Anastasi is part-restaurant and part-seafood market and it’s had the same big corner location in the Italian Market for almost a century. They have a full menu that you can order from, but what you really want to do is pick out some seafood from the market and have them cook it for you in whatever way you’d like. It can get pretty crowded, but you can always take it to go if you can’t find a table.
