Best Seafood Restaurant in City Island for Celebration

SirCynic | Feb 14, 2006 09:28 AM

O.K. so I know that the food on City Island is nothing to write home about. They are all seafood lovers and want to celebrate our anniversary at this dreadful island chock full of crab shantys! I tried effortlessly to convince my staff of 12 bakers of many other restaurants for seafood, including Fresh in NYC, Aquagrill on Spring Street and even Oceana, yet they insist on going to City Island to celebrate our bakery/cafe's 3 year anniversary. Ironically it would probably be cheaper to eat at a seafood restaurant in the city -- I checked the prices at Sammy's and it was like $47 for the 1 pound lobster. God forbid they all order Surf 'n Turf -- this may be our last celebration!! They all live in the Bronx, so I guess its convenient for them. Can someone recommend a halfway decent restaurant for our celebration located somewhere on City Island?
