Good News for South Street Seaport

Recovery from Hurricane Sandy has been slow and halting at South Street Seaport, where some businesses remain closed more than a year after the deluge, but one encouraging sign last year was the belated arrival of Trading Post. This traditional American restaurant, which opened quietly in June in a one-time ship’s chandlery, brings downtown locals a welcome upscale option in a clubby, multilevel setting. From a menu that highlights standards like raw-bar courses and a hefty tomahawk rib-eye chop for two, Chowhounds have enjoyed a Black Angus burger and a subtly spicy shrimp-tomatillo flatbread pizza.
