Seven Favorite NYC Fish Tacos

P1030918x.jpg

Despite the hype, Baja-style fish tacos have never quite gotten the traction here we might have expected, still constituting something of a gastronomic rarity in New York. Following are the seven best we've chomped on lately.


7. Tortaria (above) -- These tacos contains lots of fried red snapper with little distraction from the other materials (i.e., cabbage slaw and Russian dressing, which the menu describes rather effetely as "a mango-chipotle slaw and warm Costeño salsa"). 94 University Place, 212-776-1830

6. Coppelia -- The tacos are elegant in their simplicity at this 24-hour Latin diner, and the fish used is flounder. 207 West 14th Street, 212-858-5001

5. Tacombi at Fonda Nolita -- Thickly beer-battered and name checking Ensanada, these tilapia tacos are actually more what you'd expect to get at a beachside stand in Baja. 267 Elizabeth Street, 917-727-0179
