I'm starting to compile a list of al fresco dining spots for the summer and this beachy seafood joint in SOHO is first on the list. Located right on the edge of Little Italy, Chinatown and LES; this place is the perfect spot for people watching of all kinds. Tables of two and four line both sides of the street and the indoor space is bright and airy for those needing a bit of shade.
The menu changes daily depending on the catch of the day and market veggies but a few staples include Tuna Poke with ponzu and peanut, Curry Mussels, and Big Fish Tacos served either crispy or seared. Obviously I went fish tacos all the way (Dogfish that afternoon) served with shredded cabbage, guacamole and an ample drizzle of chipotle mayo.
These tacos were AMAZING- super crisp, super spicy and the grilled flour tortilla actually held up to all the toppings instead of falling apart. This dish and a delicious glass of rose in the sun make for a perfect afternoon.
