Fishtag Review

Upper West Siders aren't going to be throwing chef Michael Psilakis and his Greek-heavy Mediterranean fare back into the water any time soon. At Anthos, a big-box Midtown eatery that shuttered a few years ago, Psilakis was lauded for his prowess on the grill. He brings the same skills to Fishtag with dishes like grilled striped bass and grilled swordfish. Fanatics of Anthos' insanely good lamb burger can breath easy, as it's on the menu here. The wine list is long and categorized with subtitles like "Funky & Earthy" and "Explosive & Bold" and brew imbibers will declare Fishtag a good catch when they see 20 craft beers on the menu.

    Something fishy-maybe, maybe not

    When I first go to a restaurant I order the simplest thing on the menu, figuring if they get that wrong I won't go back. In this case it was the Lamb burger and a beer. The burger was moist and flavorful. I wouldn't characterize it as being greasy just really juicy (luckily they give you a big napkin!) On the other hand I wouldn't say the beer portion was skimpy I'll just say it wasn't excessive. For $9 I kind of figure the beer glass should filled up to the lip-obviously it wasn't. I wouldn't go so far as to say this would prevent me from going back, but it won't be at the very top of my list either.
