Best, and Perhaps Only, Reason to Visit the South Street Seaport (2008)

FRESH SALT

Before the Fulton Fish Market relocated to the Bronx, morning passersby to café-bar FRESH SALT could enjoy an outlandish sight: trawlermen downing whiskey during the 8 a.m. dollar-off special. But even without the odd-smelling clientele, there's still much to recommend this boîte-hidden locale: generous pours, a decent wine list, and quite possibly Manhattan's most unspeakably handsome bartender.
