New Seafood Eatery Rises To The Top


By Kamau Austin

There are a number of new successful soul food restaurants opening up in Southeast Queens.  You can read about some of them by checking out our restaurant section or doing a search on our site's search engine for soul food restaurants.

A new one we visited that is very good and promising is Sea Level Sea & Soul.  It is a well lite seafood eatery with good customer service and fresh seafood. It is owned by Ms. Aamira Moore, a gracious and experienced restaurateur. 

This new seafood place has very good reviews on Google.  I have enjoyed ordering at the seafood  place on two occasions.  I had the fried chicken and the fried whiting and both were cooked very well and were tasty.  The eatery's side dishes of collard greens and yams (two of my favorite sides) were delicious.

Sea Level Sea & Soul also sells steamed food dishes and fresh fish and vegetables.  Sea Level Sea & Soul is located at 
114-32 Farmers Blvd, Queens, NY 11412.  Their phone number is (347) 263-8300.
