There are damnably few Portuguese restaurants in the five boroughs, mainly because the Portuguese are all hanging out in Newark and other nearby parts of New Jersey. That's good, because it gives you an incentive to take the PATH to the Ironbound neighborhood, where there are Portuguese (and Brazilian) restaurants galore. Eat the way the Portuguese do themselves and go for the seafood palaces. Sit in the barroom at Sol-Mar and order seasonal seafood including grouper, conger eel, and diverse shellfish, much of it assorted in clay-pot concoctions with plenty of garlic and tomato sauce. This joint is a pescatarian's delight. 267 Ferry Street, Newark, New Jersey, 973-344-3041, solmar-restaurant.com (07105)
