Fish Tales in Cobble Hill, Where the Fishmonger Knows Your Name

Nicole Schnitzler 2 comments

Fish Tales has been supplying Brooklyn's Cobble Hill community with fresh seafood since opening in 1996. The Court Street fixture has followed the neighborhood's growth over the following 17 years—rotating its offerings and boosting its grocery selection—but two concepts remain firmly rooted in the shop's inception: its dedication to high quality fish and superb customer service.

A Sandwich a Day: Crispy Branzino at Perla

A Sandwich a Day Max Falkowitz Post a comment

A lighter lunch option than some of the other dishes we've surveyed on Perla's menu, but it's a fish sandwich the West Village should be proud of. More

A Sandwich a Day: Catfish at Van Horn in Cobble Hill

A Sandwich a Day Max Falkowitz Post a comment

A delicately fried catfish and 'slaw sandwch is a pleasantly demure alternative to the big ticket fried chicken and pimento cheese at this Cobble Hill sandwich shop. More

Video: Gefilteria Makes Small-Batch, Sustainable Gefilte Fish

Erin Zimmer 3 comments

With Rosh Hashanah ahead, the Gefilteria has been busy making kosher gefilte fish. Revile the gray, bleak-looking fish patties you may but this Brooklyn-based company uses ground whitefish, pike, and salmon instead of the more traditional, and much less sustainable, carp. More

A Sandwich a Day Gracie Dulik 1 comment

Our love affair with Num Pang's Cambodian sandwiches is no secret, so we figured their newest seasonal offering would be worth checking out—and this fish-splosion did not disappoint. More

TGI Fry-Day: Panino Di Razza Fritta from La Piazza at Eataly

TGI Fry-Day Jessie Pascoe 2 comments

This fried skate sandwich is definitely pricey, but the giant filets of local skate, made even better by a delicate fried crunch, is certainly working to earn its price tag. More

TGI Fry-Day: Crisp-Fried Red Snapper at Lotus Blue

TGI Fry-Day Jessie Pascoe Post a comment

A quick glance at Lotus Blue's menu reveals some of Yunnan's culinary signatures: heavy doses of herbs (think dressed up chrysanthemum salads), refreshing flavors (lemongrass grilled ribs and sea bass), and sweet surprises (imported Yunnan candied plums and olives). But if you are looking for a show-stopper, look no further than their Crisp-Fried Red Snapper ($25). More

A Sandwich A Day: Catfish Sandwich at Birdbath

A Sandwich a Day Sam Levison Post a comment

At first glance, the Catfish Sandwich ($9.50) at Birdbath looks like a glorified Fillet-o-Fish—and it is, except much, much better. The mayo-on-fish sandwich is not a new concept, but the folks at Birdbath execute it with grace. More

TGI Fry-Day: Cod Fritter Falafel at Mile End

TGI Fry-Day Jessie Pascoe Post a comment

Mile End's dinner menu is not for the faint of heart. A compromise among these hard-hitting carnivorous entrées and, well, a romaine salad, is the cod fritter falafel ($11), which gives traditional falafel a run for its money. Shaped like falafel, these cod fritters have a light, crisp crust (no grease!) with a flaky fish interior. You'll wish for plenty more in your order. More

Erin Zimmer 3 comments

The new smoked fish shop Shelsky's is making Carroll Gardens feel a little more Lower East Side-y. "No more schlepping," says their website. Owner Peter Shelsky, an Eleven Madison Park alum, is saving the neighborhood a trip over the bridge to Russ and Daughters for their dose of smoked, cured, and pickled fishies. More

The Brunch Dish: Smoked Bluefish Salad at Iris Cafe

Erin Zimmer 1 comment

Iris Cafe doesn't have an official brunch menu. The sandwiches and salads are available all day, but it's especially hopping inside the Brooklyn Heights nabe cafe during prime weekend brunching hours. Look on the framed chalkboard for the Smoked Bluefish Salad ($9.50). The glistening little pieces of fish from Acme Smokehouse in Greenpoint (it's their only local fish) are salty, smoky, and buttery atop a bed of lettuce leaves, hard-boiled egg slices, and roasted asparagus.
