Best-known as the brunch spot where you can take Mom on Easter, Ray's now specializes in seafood. The menu is solid but the offerings are decidedly less exotic than at its counterparts across the city. This aside, what should earn Ray's a spot on your to-be-visited list is the food. Ray's features an attractive, large menu, modern seafood house format minus the Asian/sushi bar appendages. American flavors dominate.
