next time you're in nyc, do try The Mermaid Inn... While they might not have sardines on the menu (it changes a lot), they do know how to make fish - and do it beautifully. And as for sweetbreads - all I can say it "yum"!


radish, thank you for the recommendation. Next time. I also want to visit Mary's Fish Camp to see how it compares to Pearl, another place I love.


Ooh, Mary's Fish Camp is excellent!! Pearl is superb. I just love love love The Mermaid Inn - their littleneck clams are the best!
