7 Sensational Seafood Tacos to Eat Before Summer is Over

From classic battered fish to luxurious butter-poached lobster.

A list of Westchester’s summer must-eats includes the obvious choices: burgers and clam bellies at Greasy Nick’s, a single with mustard at Walter’s, and a swirl of soft serve at King Kone. While fish tacos might not make classics list, we’re here to tell you they’re the thing you should have been eating all summer long.

And though Labor Day is fast approaching, there’s still time to get your fix, whether you’re fancy with fried oysters or a purest looking for the perfect piece of crispy Baja-style fish.
