At her seafood-centric restaurant, John Dory Oyster Bar, chef April Bloomfield (along with chef de cuisine Josh Even) transforms two of the most prosaic ingredients imaginable—anchovies and parsley—into a truly magical toast. Fashioning them into a chunky, bright green pesto finished with a touch of lemon, garlic, and olive oil, she spreads the mixture onto thin pieces of chewy toast. Given the cool $4 price tag, it's safe to say that this is one of the best appetizer deals in town. Although you might want to sneak a toothbrush into your purse—the throngs of beautiful people at the Ace Hotel might look down on those tasty flecks of green stuck between your teeth. 1196 Broadway, 212-792-9000, (10001)
