Fish and Chips at A Salt & Battery
I first saw this British import battle it out on Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network. The episode made me want to dash right down to their Greenwich Ave shop. I did at last today and the food was delicious!
The chefs (among them, Mat Arnfield, the owner) are extremely friendly and helpful. I chatted them up about the episode and they were happy to recommend the best fish to order (we got Sea Trout and Cod). The chips were awesome, too, some crunchy and some potatoey. They make desserts, surprisingly, like fried banana, pineapple or Mars bar. Sit down at bar stools, but they do delivery and take out, mostly. Have a look at the menu on menupages and you'll see this isn't just any old fish and chips.
Two drinks, two small orders of fish with their delicious homemade tartar sauce, one small order of chips, one dessert and a tip came to $25. More than worth it, it's cheap!
Also, teamed with their sweet shop, Tea & Sympathy, and Virgin Atlantic, they have a petition to call the area around Greenwich Ave and West 12th St Little Britain.
