10 Questions With Lamia’s Fish Market


New York City’s East Village is a bustling neighborhood full of people, bistros, bars, shops, and activity, which all stops when you enter the recently-opened Lamia’s Fish Market. As you walk through the doors, you’re surrounded by a tranquil underwater scene accented by amazing details.

The Mediterranean seafood-inspired restaurant includes six different rooms and ocean-themed settings. There’s the bar, which includes an actual bar from a ship, boat parts, glass map tabletops, and lights painted to look like pirate’s tattoos. Next is the Octopus Room with an octopus mural that spans one long wall, plush teal banquettes, ocean blue walls, and glowing blue orbs on the ceiling. The raw bar has an impressive skylight that shines down on the bar with seafood on display, as well as a living plant wall, mirrored barnacles, and a mermaid that was once on the front of a ship. The deck and Ship Room are a few steps above — every seat on the deck gives you a look at almost every room in the restaurant. The Ship Room is a private dining room enclosed by glass walls, with porthole windows, mermaid door handles, and walls painted by a local artist. The last area is the Grotto, overseen by a huge mermaid/octopus art wall with a sleek chef’s table and cozy banquettes below.

We toured all six rooms recently during our 10 Questions With Facebook Live show, and Manager Olga Ladna gave us the details on the space, the art, and private events at Lamia’s Fish Market. You can watch the full tour below:
