Seamore’s boasts an expansive and well-curated menu, with dishes ranging from guacamole to overflowing sandwiches and an array of seafood-filled tacos. With this menu, Chernow elevates classics just enough to hook diners on new flavor combinations, without straying too far away from crowd-pleasing favorites. The “For the Crew” section (appetizer plates meant to share) boasts inventive spins on ceviche and poke with the addition of ingredients like Tabasco and peanuts. The tacos, of which there are four, are the most composed and cohesive dishes on the menu. Each order comes with two griddled corn tacos, loaded up with ingredients like spicy squid, coconut-cumin sauce, kale and even corn nuts. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, order the beloved Odd Fellows soft serve (and the flavor of the day) for dessert. You might even catch Chernow himself delivering it to your table.
THE TUNA POKE
The perfect appetizer for two—a delicious raw tuna salad topped with ponzu, avocado and peanuts for a salty crunch.
THE OH BOY SANDWICH
This crispy fried Skate sandwich, oozing with a delicious, tangy “special sauce,” is an elevated ode to the classic fish n’ chips.
THE SEARED SEASONAL FISH TACO
The seared fish affords just the right amount of crunch, while the black beans, avocado and crema add a luxurious richness to every bite.
THE CUCUMBER-MINT AGUA FRESCA
Crisp and refreshing for summer, you can top yours off with gin, vodka, rum or tequila for an extra kick.
