A Salt & Battery

Another Fish Friday, this time the outing is to A Salt & Battery at 112 Greenwich Avenue (Btwn 12th & 13th St). This place has oodles of positive reviews and my sister, Christine, recently recommended it as well. Our crew, Robb, Jennie and I, headed up to the West Village for lunch on a perfect New York day, 50°, overcast, no rain. It is an unusual little place with just an order counter, a few stools and wall ornaments to give off an English vibe. Robb even jokingly remarked it’s just like London if only the cars had been driving on the other side of the street. The place was packed at 12:30pm, but we lucked into three stools at a side counter.

For the most part everything is deep fried, with the main attraction the fish (Haddock, Sole, Whiting or Pollock). I went with a large order of the Whiting while Robb & Jennie ordered a regular Haddock and Chips. All orders are fried on the spot, served with a side of tarter sauce or vinegar, and the fish comes out hot, crispy, and was very good. But the chips were cold and soggy; I would recommend a side of the Homemade Mushy Peas instead. We missed out on dessert, the line was too long to place an order on our way out, but you can get a deep fried Mars Bar or a deep fried Lion Bar, which is a poplar English candy bar made by Nestle.
