Here’s your first look at Michael Psilakis’s Fish Tag, the self-described “fish parlor” that opened yesterday in the space that has housed Onera, Kefi, and (quite briefly) Gus & Gabriel. As previously mentioned, Ryan Skeen collaborated with Psilakis on the fish-centric menu; you can have fish prepared their way, or if you’re not one to put on mushroom-confit airs, you can opt to have your tuna, swordfish, salmon, prawn, bass, sardines, sturgeon, or octopus simply grilled over an open flame and dressed with lemon and olive oil. Though as you’ll see in our slideshow, some dishes (for instance, the sheep's-milk dumplings with sea-urchin funduta or the scallop crudo with pickled beet and bone marrow) must be eaten as is.
As you can see below, beverage manager Gianni Cionchi has marked up the menu (arranged from light dishes to heavy) with wine, beer, and even tequila suggestions, and to further encourage pairing, most wines come in three-ounce, six-ounce, and half- and full-bottle pours. This being a Psilakis-Skeen joint, there are also ten beers on tap and fourteen by the bottle. Check out the menu, including the extensive cheese, charcuterie, and appetizing sections, and take a look at the redesigned space, plus some of the dishes, in our slideshow.
