Dinner @ Carmine's Italian Seafood NYC (with pics) Fri, 02/22/08 8:04 AM (permalink)
I had dinner last night with my GF and her brother at our favorite neighborhood Italian joint, Carmine's Italian Seafood Restaurant around 6:30 pm. It's located on Beekman Street near the South Street Seaport and just steps from the location of the former Fulton Fish Market in Lower Manhattan. We were the only ones there an a rare slow night. Here are the pics:
Here is my 1/2 order of lobster fra diavolo. This was pretty big for a 1/2 order and very tasty. The spiciness was just right and not too hot.

The veal parmesan with spaghetti. I know, hard to see the veal under the cheese and sauce, but her brother really liked it.

My GF's Zuppa di Pesce. Clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops and calamari in a brothy tomato sauce. Incredibly good and huge! A real classic dish.

Garlic bread

Complimentary salad. Like the salad I grew up with a the local Italian restaurants of my youth.

They just finished repainting this. 105 years and still going strong!

    I think you should amend the title of this thread to include the words "Italian Seafood" after the word "Carmines". I think everyone is going to automatically assume you're going to be talking about the other monstrosities named "Carmines" (which I happen to love, but they ain't no "neigborhood joint")

        BB, Your Carmine's probably preceeded the more famous one of gargantuan portions. I wonder why they haven't yet been sued to change their name.

          yeah, i assumed you were talking about the other Carmines! This looks great. As for the family-style Carmines, it's not bad for a post-matinee Saturday dinner with the kids, but it is what it is. For family style italian, I much prefer Tony's Dinapoli - upper eastside, and now one in Times Square!

            omg those pics look amazing. i'm scouting out good family style restaurants to go to with my fam on vacation in nyc this summer and this place looks perfect. I love this website! i also found this helpful video review website that is great and a lot of fun to just browse around at all the restaurants. check it out, there are 24 reviews for carmines! http://uloveny.com/nyc/venue/2/267/10108/carmines. enjoy :-)

              lola, I too love that Carmine's in Times Square, but that's not the same one that I posted in this thread. The one above in way downtown by the South Street Seaport in Lower Manhattan. It's not family style at all. No connection to the one in Times Square. This one has lots of great old school red sauce charm and the food is really great!
