050208fishmarket.jpgFish Market: This little bar and restaurant is a loving homage to the now closed Fulton Fish Market; photos of the market from the ‘30’s line the exposed brick walls, illuminated by nautical lamps under a vintage copper ceiling. Andrea Strong takes a glance at the new South Street restaurant, which also features an impressive view of the Brooklyn Bridge. She says Chef Eddie Montalvo’s menu is as ambitious as it is pricey; with standout entrees including a whole branzino ($37) with clams, tapioca, shaved baby fennel, saffron-citrus broth; and organic chicken with parsnip puree, black trumpets, and almond pepitoria ($27). At the bar, a dish of citrus-marinated mussels with crushed pepper and mint goes for $10. 111 South Street, (212) 233-3301.

The owners of the old Rialto on Elizabeth and Prince have redesigned the interior to make it sleek and irresistible to yupsters, replete with a sexy silver skull and an overall air of well-groomed decadence. Thrillist gives the new place their usual J. Peterman treatment, calling it “a convenient locus of moral turpitude.” The tequila/chili/cucumber Double Down cocktail will surely prompt high fives and Swingers dialogue recitations, while the small plates menu has something for everyone, even fans of watermelon salad. Oh, and the 50 seat patio has a roof that “retracts so smoothly, it's like watching structural striptease.” Enjoy some more striptease photos on Eater. 265 Elizabeth Street, (212) 334-2426.

Plan B:
After waiting almost a year for liquor license approval, Prospect Heights bar Plan B has finally come to fruition. (Not to be confused with Greenpoint’s incorrigible Studio B or the East Village’s ever-mobbed Plan B.) This Plan B, located in the old Half wine bar space, has four flat screen TVs for sporting types, a classic bar menu, ten beers on tap, and plenty of elbow room in the back courtyard. 626 Vanderbilt Ave, no phone listed.
