Bar Taco

1 Willet Ave, Port Chester; 914.937.8226
Lotta tacos to choose from at this hopping harborside hotspot, and the four fish-filled picks never disappoint. Think: spicy tempura-battered cod with chipotle slaw, cilantro, and onion; grilled corvina with Veracruz slaw and Vietnamese nuoc cham sauce; chilled ancho-crusted tuna, Asian slaw, Thai basil vinaigrette, soy glaze, and sesame seeds; and a duo of crispy fried oysters over remoulade. Go super light with a Bibb lettuce shell or classic with a corn tortilla. Pro tip: Whisper #bartacosecret to your server and don’t say we never gave you anything.

El Barrio

Bringing Mexican street food to a whole new level, the calamari and shrimp ceviche taco is the definition of fresh, light, and summer. Here, the marine delights are marinated in lime juice and served with avocado and homemade slaw on a char-grilled tortilla.

LALA Taqueria

150 Larchmont Ave, Larchmont; 914.834.2244
If you know you know, and be sure you know about these specialty tacos even though they might not appear on the menu. The grilled Spanish octopus one with pickled onion, avocado, and guajillo oil is a must, as is the shrimp varietal with bacon, pineapple, and a tamarind glaze – it’s bacon us hungry. When these specials are not available, the Baja fish taco with mahi mahi, habanero mayo, and avocado sauce is a solid fallback.

PopoJito

46 Christie Pl, Scarsdale; 914.713.8946
For a classic coastal flood in a tortilla, check out the crispy calamari topped with the house chipotle aioli or the mahi mahi with avocado crema and mango pineapplepico (say that three times fast, if at all). For a zippy marine delight, the cilantro and garlic shrimp won’t disappoint. And, did we mention all tacos are GF?

Rio Bravo Tacos & Tequila

296 Columbus Ave, Tuckahoe; 914.361.1515
Four fish tacos grace the menu at this always bustling, nayb fave for margs and elevated Mexican standards including two tilapia-based tempters: one dipped in Dos Equis tempura with dill crema, and the other served blackened with poblano crema and roasted Mediterraneo salsa. A cheese-lovers tortilla plays host to melted Jack, caramelized onions, and fried calamari on top, while the piece de resistance is bacon-wrapped shrimp with caramelized onions, mixed cabbage, Pico de Gallo, roasted chipotle, and melted Jack.

The Taco Project

18 Main St, Tarrytown; 914.909.4455
65 Pondfield Rd, Bronxville; 914.356.8226
1086 N Broadway, Yonkers; 914.375.4000

As the name suggests, there are a staggering number of tacos and burritos to choose from and three are stuffed with seafood. The Cajun salmon packs a zippy punch with house-made wasabi slaw, chipotle aioli, and fresh cilantro, while the tempura-battered shrimp comes sweet and spicy with mouth-watering mango salsa and tomatillo sauce. Choose sautéed or battered for the Atlantic cod taco that’s topped with red cabbage slaw, guaca salsa, cilantro, and crunchy fresh radish.

Tipsy Taco Bar

487 E. Main St, Mt. Kisco; 914.218.3460
You’ll find four variations of fish tacos here, but the two standouts are crispy and salty cornmeal-crusted Blue Point Oysters paired with a homemade relish and chipotle aioli; and wild salmon tartare marinated in sesame ginger and tucked into a hard-shell organic corn tortilla for that extra crunch.
