Partial signage is now up for seafood restaurant Seamore’s at 1278 Third Avenue, at the corner of 73rd Street. We first noted that the NYC chain might be expanding to the UES back in May, when it was listed among several bars and restaurants applying for liquor licenses. With current locations at Brookfield Place, in Chelsea, Nolita, Dumbo and at Urbanspace on West 52nd Street. Seamore’s “SoCal inspired menu always feature[s] a rotating daily catch of seasonal fish straight from the docks of Montauk and the Northwest Atlantic.” Popular menu items include Baja fish tacos, lobster rolls, local oysters, lobster mac ‘n cheese and tuna poke.

The owner of Dylan Murphy’s, located at 1453 Third Avenue between 82nd and 83rd Street, is expanding with a new bar called The Raven Pub. The new bar will be located at 1471 First Avenue, between 76th and 77th Street, and Patch reports that it will come with a similar menu to Dylan Murphy’s and a backyard. The Raven Pub has a website which, as of writing, doesn’t have any info on it, and an Instagram page which will hopefully soon see its first post.
Patch also reports that a Middle Eastern tapas restaurant, Lashevet, will be opening at 1663 First Avenue, between East 86th and 87th streets. The small space will focus on Moroccan, Israeli and Lebanese cuisine, according to owner Boris Lidukhover (who also owns Sushi Dojo in the East Village).
