This Bronx seafood joint (a spinoff of the classic Sammy's Fish Box) offers epic portions of fresh seafood. First-time visitors to City Island may be surprised to find a fishing village vibe within the city limits and restaurants that would fit right in on Cape Cod. Sammy's moderately priced menu includes New England clam chowder, Maine lobsters, platters of fried whole bellies, broiled fish fillets, steaks for landlubbers and a children's menu. There are also a few Latin dishes like arroz con pollo and paella left over from the restaurant's previous identity as Tito Puente's. Locals and day-trippers stretch out in cushioned booths and at large tables in the bustling dining room year-round; in warm weather, there's sidewalk seating (though, sadly, no water view). Visitors on tight schedules should note that getting from Midtown to City Island on public transit takes well over an hour.

What to tell a cabbie From most points in the city, a taxi ride to City Island will be expensive. Consider taking public transit or asking the staff at your hotel to arrange a fixed fare with a car service.
