Profile

Appropriately situated near the Williamsburg waterfront, Rosarito Fish Shack features open air windows, sea-creature wallpaper, and decorative raw bar. The menu begins with tacos: overstuffed tiny tortillas that come two to an order, including classic pescado, short rib and avocado, huitlacoche mushroom, and even camarones al pastor. Well-spiced ceviches are fresh, citrusy and bursting with flavor. Mezcal, from the attached tequila bar, makes its way onto the menu in the glazed tuna entree, tender and accompanied by a tempura pepper hidden under a mushroom salad. Two jumbo lump crab cakes are generously sized, encased by a thin layer of crisp breading, and stacked beside a tower of forgettable truffle fries. The ambitious shack stew mixes octopus, shrimp, mussels, clams, white fish, and even chorizo with rice. For dessert, “Tiramex-su” puts a spicy twist on the Italian classic by means of Mexican cacao and tequila-infused lady fingers.

Bar stays open until 2 a.m. on Friday and 4 a.m. on Saturday
