Axe has an aggressive plan for a big capital raise, but it’s put in jeopardy when Andalov backs out. With no other option, Axe and Wags go up to the restaurant Sammy’s Fish Box on City Island to meet with Frotty Anisman, a gauche potential investor. Anisman asks for pretty outrageous things, like becoming partner and getting his name on the Axe Capital company. Axe and Wags watch Anisman slurp oysters (if you’ve seen the episode, you’ll see why they find this pretty gross). City Island is situated off the Bronx, with the feel of a seaside town rather than a part of New York City. Check out the secrets of City Island and see a guide here.
