What to Eat at Prima

What to Eat at Prima
Liz Barclay

This week, I reviewed Prima in the East Village, a small seafood bar that offers coffee and pastries during the day. It's run by Hamid Rashidzada and Greg Seider (who you might know from Summit Bar) and Frenchman David Malbequi is the chef.

Those are the whelks, above, ugly sea snails hiding in their shells. They're poached until they're no longer chewy, just a bit bouncy, and served simply with mayonnaise and lemon.

Start with the bright, cold, well-seasoned ceviche of the day. If you're lucky, it'll be mackerel

Fish, seared in a pan with butter, and finished in the oven, is the thing to get at Prima.

Finish with a crowd-pleasing millefeuille: very crisp pastry, two textures of sweet cream, and strawberry jam
