As a Union Square seafood option, closer to the late, somewhat-lamented Blue Water Grill (sushi bar options) than the late, less-lamented City Crab (no mallets, lobster rolls, fried clams). The real comparison is with midtown's Ocean Prime and post-townhouse Oceana.

Quite plush and lush, with most entrees in the high-30's and 40's. Carabineros are $15 a pop, as opposed to $10 - $12 at George Mendes's late, lamented Lupulo. For those prices you get an army of support staff, a manager quickly apologizing for a misheard order, and perfectly prepared scallops.

As befits the chef's Milos roots, there's also a sparkling display of the night's selections on ice, which you'll be invited to peruse prior to ordering. I wish this extremely pleasant restaurant well, and sincerely hope they find an audience on this semi-cursed corner of Park Avenue South.
