I'm taking issue with this one. Fung's Kitchen is one of the few places to have both a very good chef and aquariums in the dining room from which the seafood is taken. Alive. Before it's cooked. Last week they had Alaskan King crab, wonderful turbot, eels, spotted shrimp, and scallops. Brasserie 19 is average compared to an adventure at Fung's.

As any good brasserie should, Brasserie 19 offers a voluptuous selection of seafood to its swanky River Oaks clients — including a super-spendy seafood tower christened "Le Grand Dix Neuf Plateau" — as well as other specialty items like Osetra caviar. Fans of cooked seafood will enjoy classics like trout almondine and house-made salmon gravlax, while more adventurous diners can enjoy grilled octopus. The restaurant brings in fresh mussels from Prince Edward Island and oysters from all over the world, which you can watch being shucked to order in a cozy, quiet corner of the otherwise boisterous brasserie.
