There may be a no-reservations policy and limited seating (we’re talking 10 tables), but don’t let the small size or simple set up fool you: this top-flight seafood shack is a legend in the Village. Mary’s sweet corner location is loaded with atmospheric touches like a tin ceiling and a stainless steel bar (which has a few extra seats), and the combo of cute décor details and a laidback, beachy vibe transports diners from the city to Cape Cod.
Couples on dates, seafood lovers, and West Village locals.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
In keeping with the seafood shack vibe, it’s casual. Try jeans, a t-shirt, flats, and aviator sunglasses.
GO HERE WITH
Small groups; family; a date; yourself
WHY WE LIKE IT
The simply delicious fish and shellfish. Plus, with takeout available, you can beat the crowds and feast at home.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Maybe a few more tables, especially outdoors during the nicer weather.
GOOD TO KNOW
Because it’s so cramped, Mary’s is not a place for groups. (Also note that they also will not seat you unless your party is complete.) The fish is delivered six days a week, and, to ensure freshness, Mary’s never orders more than the minimum, meaning supplies are always limited and dishes often sell out. A word of advice: ask the server about availability before you set your heart on anything.
