Located at the back of the bustling St. Lawrence market, you will find a simple yet delicious takeout restaurant that seems as if it has been transplanted directly from New York City.
The scene is absolute chaos. As soon as you enter the line you are asked what you would like to order by a young girl with a microphone. Once you have chosen, she relays this to the kitchen staff… although no one seems to take notice as they scramble to prepare the correct orders for hungry customers… and there are tons of them. I think the girl with the microphone is a clever ploy to ensure that there is no hesitation once you reach the front of the line. You have made your choice, no turning back now!
I know a lot of people who rave about the calamari, but I find it to be a bit rubbery and flavorless. The seafood orzo is to die for, and if you’re feeling up for a bit of a weightier meal try the halibut on a bun (I have yet to eat a better sandwich in the city) or the swordfish sandwich.
St. Lawrence market is one of my favorite attractions in the city, and Buster’s Sea Cove is one of, if not the, best part about the whole shtick.
