In the Navy
Seafood and Creative Bloodys in SoHo

There’s only one military branch that sails the high seas.

That has furnished you with impeccable peacoats.

That has its own shade of blue.

That inspired a Village People song.

Yes, it’s the Navy.

And there’s only one restaurant you’re about to read about named after it.

Believe it or not, it’s Navy, a quaint little stunner of a SoHo seafood spot, now open.

If you live in SoHo, consider this your new neighborhood go-to. If you don’t, consider this your new first-date go-to. Just a small slice of nautical flags and banquettes that look like benches you’d see on a boat. You get it.

It may hold a record for fastest door-to-raw-bar time. Oysters and uni are the first things you’ll see upon entering. Contain any urges to start grabbing bivalves—instead, guide your comely guest past the copper-top bar to a back-corner two-top.

The menu changes daily. Maybe you’ll get crispy gnocchi tonight. Maybe it’ll be pastry-wrapped trout for two (fish pastries: finally). And woe unto the poor fool who neglects the cocktails: Navy’s idea of a Bloody includes port, porter and an oyster on top. They’re also bringing back a Guinness-and-champagne classic called Black Velvet.

Let the great Alannah Myles–Inspired Drink Revolution of ’14 begin...
