Current Obsession: Sammy's Fishbox

In NYC, it can be a challenge to find delicious food that doesn't break the bank. When I discover a new gem, I tend to get a bit obsessed. Spice thai had long held my favorite place to eat position until last weekend when i first encountered Sammy's Fishbox. Located at the tail end of City Island, a sleepy beach town off the Bronx, this had to be the most flavorful food/seafood I'd ever tasted in my life!
As if good food isn't enough, the restaurant is sprawling (so nice to not eat on top of your neighbors!), open after midnight, family friendly and also good for dates. Accessible by city bus BX29 or driving, a visit to Sammy's makes for a lovely summer lunch or cozy winter meal.
The portions are so huge, you'll be eating Sammy's for days! I had Shrimp Scampi, but next time I'm getting a Seafood Lovers Fried Platter :)

Other Sammy's fans? Regulars, Mariah Carey and the New York Yankees. I venture to say this is the best seafood in New York City!
