Seamore’s Nolita: All Talk, No Taco! (Or Lobster Roll, for that matter)
It’s a balmy Friday afternoon in October, about 75 degrees — truly suns out, guns out weather. What better way to spend it than basking in the sun in Nolita? You grab one of your faves and wander over to Seamore’s, hyping up its fish tacos and cool scene.

The guacamole starter is great as well.
