If you've been wondering how to discover hidden menu items at restaurants—and getting into the spirit by binging on BravoTV.com's Going Off the Menu—here's one hint: Start by knowing what under-the-radar dishes to ask for in a restaurant. If you whisper to a waiter "Hey, what's the secret off-menu item?" you probably won't get far. But walking in knowing exactly what you want to eat—and having a strong hunch that you'll be able to get it—is likely to yield results. Delicious, memorable results you can brag about later.
For instance: You'll want to know about the Fish 'n' Chips at New York City hotspot Seamore's (pictured above), the new Soho restaurant owned by Michael Chernow of the city's famed Meatball Shop. They're made with Atlantic pollock or another in-season fish, and served with de rigueur malt vinegar, along with housemade tartar sauce and fingerling potatoes.
