The tide is high, but we’re holding on.

Summer 2012 will likely go down in the pages of Lower East Side nightlife history as the moment seafood seized the throne of trend. A tipping point, if you will. In a rather brief three-month period, the neighborhood learned of four likeminded maritime establishments. Each within short walking distance.

Grey Lady opened its doors in May and followed suit last week with its snack stand, Nor East Clam Shack; the folks behind Fat Radish are bringing oysters and cocktails to 14B Orchard Street with Lead Belly; and Home Sweet Home vet Kristin Vincent is angling for the corner of Bowery and Delancey. But, wait, there’s another.

Documents submitted to Community Board 3 this week reveal that the old Panda NYC hangout at 139 Chrystie itself has a seafood replacement. It’s allegedly called The Boil, a “sit down restaurant” that will serve twenty tables from 4pm – 2am daily.
