103 W Pleasant Ave, Maywood, NJ
Although we have access to great sushi and Asian-style seafood restaurants, One of the problems we have in Northern New Jersey is that we have a lack of regular, traditional, American-style seafood places and seafood stores and fish mongers. Sure, you can get a pretty good seafood meal at Legal in Garden State Plaza or in the nearby Palisades Center in New York, but for the most part the independent, small seafood restaurant serving fresh catch is extinct.
So when Seafood Gourmet opened up its little 25-seat dining room in January of 2006 serving traditional American (and Italian-American) seafood the restaurant became an instant hit. It’s not unusual for this place to do well over 100 covers a night, so you want to get there early.
