Ben is in the Big Apple, out to prove that New York City is one giant fishing village. Ben heads out into its waters with Dave Pasternak of Esca and Eataly fame, where the duo fish in Jamaica Bay. Then Ben and Dave head to Il Pesce in Eataly to prepare one of his favorites, striped bass. Ben travels to Chelsea next, where he meets Alex Guarneschelli, chef at Darby/Butter. They head over to F. Rozzo and Sons to meet Chef Guarneschelli's fish guy and pick up some ingredients before heading back to the eatery to cook up the "catch."
