The Mermaid Inn

96 Second Ave.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 674-5870

Whether you're dining beneath the trees on the stone patio or amidst the interior's clapboard ceiling and white walls carrying maps of the Atlantic, you may forget that you're in the East Village and not a New England fish shack. The fresh taste of mustard-crusted rainbow trout, fish tacos, and lobster sandwiches certainly helps the imagination. And did we mention the raw bar with up to 17 East and West Coast varities of oysters? The Mermaid Inn is a sure reality and one of the area's more affordable seafood options. Plus, this fish house's offering of free dessert to every diner mirrors its business concept: Always give back to those who give to you, both locally, globally and even back to the sea, which the Mermaid Inn does with donations to ACCION New York and Save Bristol Bay.
