For 10 days after Hurricane Sandy, Soho went dark. The storm cut electricity downtown; most businesses not directly affected by flooding shuttered for the duration or operated on an abridged basis, flashlights in hand. But Aquagrill owners Jeremy and Jennifer Marshall embarked on no such staycation. Instead, they rented a generator truck, their staff trekked to work on foot, and business marched forward. Grateful Manhattanites streamed in for freshly shucked oysters and clams, lobster tails, crab claws, tuna tartares, savory bisques, chowders, and all manner of fishes grilled, poached, and roasted. In a word, the usual, because that’s how they roll. Today, the Marshalls count that period as one of their fondest memories in almost 20 years in business, even after countless summers serving trays and towers of shellfish on their buzzing terrace along Sixth Avenue, which, as soon as the weather warms, is always packed to the gills.
