Pan-Roasted Freshwater Prawns

Oceano Bistro, $13

Chefs know that presentation sells the dish. That’s why executive chef Jon Lowe sells a trawler’s worth of these freshwater prawns every week. This is an appetizer that masquerades as a mini entrée: Four monster prawns are sautéed, shells on, and set atop a grilled slice of baguette with a moat of saffron-scented seafood broth below. Spectacular—but intimidating. That is, until the server asks, “May I remove those shells for you?” at which point smiles appear and the diner easily navigates what might be the city’s best shellfish appetizer.
