Portholes, teak paneling, angular passageways and windows, cabin-inspired private rooms, and arched ceilings — Lure certainly impresses first-timers with its luxury liner motif. That said, it's the food — the truest measure of a restaurant's capacity for staying afloat — that makes this place SoHo's fashionable choice for fish and seafood. Those opting for bar food dining can enjoy Puget Sound oysters, artic char or Littleneck clams; meanwhile, the "Fish Board" features options like grilled swordfish with soy-ginger marinade and bay leaf-crusted seared tuna. TRAIN B, D, F, V to Broadway-Lafayette; R, W to Prince St; 6 to BleekerEste local en plena zona comercial del Soho guarda un montón de sorpresas. Está escondido en el sótano de la tienda de Prada, su diseño evoca un yate y, a pesar de ser un restaurante especializado en productos del mar, su ‘cheeseburger’ es una de las mejores hamburguesas de la ciudad. Los amantes de las ostras son habituales en Lure. “Ofrecemos entre seis y ocho tipos de ostras de la costa Este y Oeste. La selección rota dependiendo de la temporada y hay una oferta especial diaria”, explica el chef Josh Capon. Lure sólo ofrece cerveza embotellada, pero siempre guarda un par de variedades producidas en microcervecerías, como la Southern Tier IPA y la Whale’s Tail Pale Ale, ambas procedentes del estado de Nueva York.

New York Daily News: A European hotel chain known for its itty-bitty rooms hopes to make a big splash this summer when it opens its first U.S. location west of Times Square.

Called Yotel, the futuristic 669-room hotel on 10th Ave. and 42nd St. offers "everything you might find in a luxury hotel in under 200 square feet," executives say.

"I wanted Yotel to use innovative radical design to create a mixture of luxury, fun, comfort and excitement at an affordable price," Yotel CEO Gerard Greene said in a statement Thursday.

Rooms - which the chain calls "cabins" - start at $149 a night for two adults. At 167 square feet, the low-end "Premium Cabin" offers a retractable queen-sized bed, cramped walk-in shower and mini-workstation.

Premium Cabins with a bunk bed over the queen will cost $179. That's a pint-sized price, considering most hotel rooms in the tourist-heavy area go for more than $200.

Yotel's three locations in London and Amsterdam feature even smaller rooms, which can be booked for as little as four hours at a time. All three are attached to major airports. At London Heathrow Airport, $145 buys 24 hours in a 75-square foot cabin with a single bunk bed and small shower.

Yotel in Times Square will include a restaurant designed like a Japanese sumo-wrestling platform with long, shared tables and a giant outdoor terrace with fire places, cabanas and two bars.

The compact quarters fill 27 floors of a new building on 42nd St. between Ninth and 10th Aves. called Middle of Manhattan - MiMA for short. The building includes 500 apartments, 151 condos and several theaters.

Tourists wandering Times Square had some reservations on Thursday about booking a room at Yotel.

"As a tourist, if it's convenient, clean and safe, definitely it would be a good deal," said Leo Yal, 32, a vacationer from Shanghai. "As a business traveler, it's not a good deal. My company pays for bigger hotels."

Christopher Meirelles, 24, a model who lives in Brazil, wondered whether the rooms were a bargain. "It sounds very practical, but I don't think the price is cheap enough for such a small room," Meirelles said. "It doesn't sound like a good deal, and I wouldn't stay there."

But Sue Rider, 65, of Wisconsin, sized up the price and gave a thumbs up. "You don't come to New York to stay in your hotel," she said. "All you need is a place to sleep and take a shower. I'm looking for cheap, so I would stay there."

Red and yellow watermelons, ripe strawberries, squash blossoms, heads of romaine and Bibb lettuces and fresh chickpeas are among the crops being lowered, using a pulley system, from the rooftop garden on a building in Greenwich Village. These will supply the kitchen of Bell Book & Candle, a restaurant opening in a month or so on the building’s ground floor. John Mooney, above, the chef, and his partner, Mick O’Sullivan, are growing more than 70 varieties of herbs, vegetables and fruits using a hydroponic automatic watering system of vertically planted structures, like little towers studded with openings for the plants. The pulley system is an alternative to hauling produce down six flights of stairs (there’s no elevator). The partners are sharing their harvest with neighborhood restaurants, but once they open, Mr. O’Sullivan estimates they will grow about 60 percent of their own restaurant’s produce.

A converted carriage house, with walls now dressed in red and white plaid, provides the setting for this intimate little East Villager, where traditional French bistro and New Orleans fare find their confluence. Fish and seafood headline this tour de force — from oysters Rockefeller with pancetta and spinach to lobster flavored by spices from the Big Easy. As space is limited (the place can seat, perhaps, two dozen people) and Jack's reputation seems to grow daily, reservations are essential. Tasting menu $50. TRAIN: 6 to Astor Pl
