Be warned, rearview reader: the objects in this photo editorial are larger than they appear. Thus, eyes might be far bigger than stomachs. Yet, persevere eating to your fill and you’ll find that these sea critter delicacies from famed New York City institutions The Lobster Place and Citarella leave you in gluttonous, disaffected euphoria. From the beach come succulent octopus tendrils, juicy lobster claws, buttery red snapper, and sexy mussels—juices run down chins at summer BBQs as you mince about fielding compliments on your latest award, donning, of course, the finest handmade sunglasses from Dita 1, 2 and Barton Perreira3, as well as classics from Chanel 4 and Tom Ford 5. And what is the sea without artisan salts? No more boring varieties from Brittany or Maldon—those you can buy at the grocery store. (Blech!) Instead, we opt for boutique varieties such as Murray River pink salt (pink from carotene), Afar salt pearls, and Kona deep-water sea salt from the ever-amazing Salt Traders. For salts like these, we recommend wounds.
