Though Son Of A Gun—the new seafood joint by Animal chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo—just opened late last week, the reviews are unanimous: It's not just the place to see and be seen, (our table was flanked by Drew Barrymore, Shiri Appleby, and tons of well-dressed industry types) but also the food at this hot new eatery is positively delish. You’ll want to skip the cocktails, and order a beer to enjoy with their amazingly yummy lobster roll ($7), mussels ($12), shrimp toast sandwich ($11), and for those of you with an exotic palate, we can highly recommend the linguine and clam with uni pasta ($16). The jewel box of a resto is decorated like the hull of a ship with a nautical hipster twist: Think antlers, antique mirrors, ships wheels, and sextons, plus it’s small enough to be intimate without feeling crowded. And while booking a table may be a no-brainer, if you have any outfit concerns, fear not because we’ve got you covered. Just pick up this beautiful seafoam dress with sweet embellishments, and pair it will an Anndra Neen necklace, APC moccasins, and a few coats of RGB’s lovely new lacquer, and you’ll be set to dine in style. In short, Son Of A Gun is the ultimate buzz-worthy eatery to take your honey on a hot date or go with a group of friends for good grub—trust, you’ll want to make your rezzie now before the tables are all booked.
