Vernick Fish is an enormous, gorgeous restaurant on the floor of the newest Comcast Tower, and it’s from the people behind Vernick Food & Drink and Vernick Coffee Bar. Technically, the restaurant is supposed to resemble an oyster bar down the Shore, but it’s way fancier than any place we’ve ever been to there - even in Avalon. The menu is, as the name implies, mostly seafood, with one of the most extensive raw bars in the city. There’s also a “not fish” section of the menu, with things like pork milanese and ribeye, in case you’re not into seafood.
