EATS BEAT: Seafood, omakase-style sushi and superfood cocktails

New to the scene…

* A new seafood refuge is about to make a dash in Inwood. Seawalk Restaurant, opening Wednesday, Jun 7 (261 Dyckman St.), will offer up contemporary dishes in a nautical-chic ambiance. There’s a 15-foot dug-out merged on a china chrome wave-like wall with imprints beaten in to demeanour like sea ripples. Chef Fernando Mayers, before of DB Bistro Moderne, offers a fresh ceviche preference along with grilled octopus, pan-seared red limp and an array of homemade pastas like cavatelli with braised beef cheek.

* Trust your sushi chef. That’s the thought at Sushi Ishikawa, an resourceful new omakase-style grill opening Wednesday, Jun 7 on the Upper East Side (419 E. 74th St.), which means the cook selects the menu. Chef and owners Don Pham will spin out two strange omakase menus (12 courses for $85; 15 courses for $125), which will change constantly formed on fresh, anniversary catches. Pham customizes his sushi selections for any guest, so they have the many personalized — and unexpected — experience.

* Chef Chris Santos is elaborating the global street food-inspired menu at mega hit club-staurant Vandal (199 Bowery), some-more than a year after it opened. He’s adding new equipment like tuna and salmon poke bowls, crispy cauliflower tacos, and a duck tortilla movement of his renouned soup dumplings. And what would a summer menu be but Frosé (frozen rosé)? You’ll be means to sequence that now, too.

* Be happy every hour at Latin Beet Kitchen (43 W. 24th St.) in Flatiron where some summer-themed cocktails are done with superfoods. Take the Spanglish Rockstar, done with rum, carrot, orange and thyme extract and house-made turmeric soda; or the Cumbia Mule with vodka, watermelon, chia seeds and ginger beer. Get any cocktail for $9 from noon to 9 p.m. daily.

Happening this week…

* Here’s an inducement for New Yorkers to actually wish to hang out in Times Square. The outside food and music festival, Taste of Times Square, is back Monday (46th St. between Broadway and 10th Ave.) with some-more than 50 restaurants portion up bites and booze. There’s a tasty register of newcomers including Mighty Quinn’s BBQ; Wafels Dinges; Dim Sum Palace; Burger Lobster; and Brooklyn Ball Factory. Wash it all down at a pop-up drink garden (46th St. between Eighth and Ninth Aves.) featuring wash from Heartland Brewery.
