A blue awning and yellow interior (our favorite restaurant colors) provide the setting for one of the city's best places of seafood worship. The intensely green pea soup comes with chopped shrimp, a few whole peas—obviously fresh—and a dab of cream. Warm octopus salad comes with roasted red bell pepper and onion and may serve as either appetizer or entree. For a casual lunch try the Aquagrill Sandwich stuffed with fried Dungeness crabcakes and moistened with sweet slaw and tarragon tartar sauce. Brunch might be as simple as smoked salmon on a bagel. Topping the list of lunch and dinner entrees is grilled salmon with a falafel crust. Alternatively, you might just attack the raw oyster selection, priced per piece, which rivals midtown's Grand Central Oyster Bar.
