Best Raw Bars

We have an anniversary coming up and I'm dreaming of raw oysters, raw clams, maybe a seafood tower, steamed lobster to follow... Balancing freshness, quality and price (so that dreams really can come true!) , what are the five to ten best seafood houses/ raw bars in NYC to consider?
Thanks, All!

Nagoya Sushi - Riverdale

I'm wondering if anyone has tried the new Nagoya Sushi Ltd. on Mosholu Avenue in Riverdale. The prices and selections on their flyer seem excellent, but is the sushi/sashimi fresh and well-prepared? Thanks!

Any Worthy Seafood on City Island??

I know the food on City Island is not outstanding, but come spring /summer, my husband and I would like to go and check it out one afternoon. Are there any restaurants worth trying? Thanks!

New Mexican place in Yonkers

Hubby and I tried Rancho grande for lunch the other day. We thought to food was terrific, but on the pricey side. I had the mole chicken, nice presentation and delicious boneless chicken breasts. I just wish you could choose black beans instead of refrieds as a side. The restaurant itself is very attractive with a nice staff.

Riverdale - Palace of Japan & Garden Gourmet

Just got back from 5 restful months in rural PA, and found Palace of Japan closed for renovation. Does anyone know if and when it will be reopening, and what the changes might be in terms of the menu?

Also, we just discovered the Garden Gourmet on Broadway (233rd St.) - WOW!! We could barely breathe, we were so excited. Goat meat, $2.49/lb.! The cheeses! The Ajvar! The deli! How long has that place been there? It was an absolute zoo when we went yesterday evening, but we can't wait to go back and take a closer look after the holiday rush. Any specialty recommendations from the store? Is it a good place to buy meats?

Anyone Tried the Totonno's on Tuckahoe Road?

Is this outpost of the Brooklyn original up to the Brooklyn standard? Should we stick to the pizza? Any other recommendations from the menu? Thanks!!

Recs for Settler's Inn & Has Anyone Tried the Trackside Grill in Honesdale?

Hubby and I are going to the Settler's Inn tomorrow to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Is there anything in particular we should try there? Anything we should stay away from? Also, has anyone given the new Trackside Grill On Main Street in Honesdale a try?

Best Offerings at Cold Cut City or "Tazmohol"

We're going to Kingbridge this weekend and will probably stop by Cold Cut City for lunch. Any outstanding recommendations for sandwiches or anything else on their menu? Also, a while back, a poster mentioned a fairly new Indian restaurant (Tazmohol?) on 231st Street near Piper's Kilt. Has anyone tried this place, or has the original poster returned? Any feedback? Thanks!

London Lennies Recs

My sister-in-law wants to go to London Lennie's for her 60th birthday. I've heard the food is just decent. Are there any outstanding dishes? How's the bouillabaisse? How about the raw food, like the shellfish tower? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Terrific Classy Riverdale Restaurant

We'd like to take my sister-in-law out for her 60th birthday, and are looking for a very good/excellent restaurant in the Riverdale area. For health reasons, she needs to avoid red meat, so Jake's won't work. Please, help! Thanks!
