Maybe while scanning WebMD to find out whether you have a cold or the bubonic plague, you also read an article about the benefits of omega-3s. Or perhaps you just like raw fish and don’t want to get delivery sushi for the fourth time this week. Check out Surfish, a Peruvian spot on 3rd Avenue that serves 10 different types of ceviche. Our favorite is the mixed seafood one, which is a big portion of fish, shrimp, mussels, and octopus covered in citrus and red onion. Come for a low-key date, or eat a quick, healthy solo dinner at the bar while doing more award-winning medical research on your phone.

Suggested by our writers
Llama Inn isn’t actually a hotel for llamas, but it is a Peruvian restaurant very much worth the trip to Williamsburg.
The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club
Royal Palms is a great place to day drink while also doing an “activity.”
The original Seamore's is in Nolita, and the Chelsea location is pretty much the same. Stop by for some casual seafood, maybe in your gym clothes.
