good Fish & Chips in Financial District?

Bex714 Feb 19, 2009 06:38 AM

Hey - I answered a post last week about fish and chips and haven't been able to think of anything since. Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to hit any of my favorite places today but I would push an old woman down a flight of stairs and kick a puppy for some fish 'n' chippy goodness!

The thing with fish and chips is, if I have BAD fish and chips, not only will I eat it all and be unhappy, I'll have to go out tomorrow and buy (and eat) it all over again from British Style.

Can anyone recommend a place? I'm at King & York, Metropass in hand....

            Couldn't agree more. The corned beef and cabbage is also quite excellent.

            There's tons of pub around but for something different I found that Epic does a pumpkin seed crusted halibut. Sounds too healthy to hit that fish and chips button though! :D

              the pumpkin seed crusted halibut sounds delish - but I think I'll wait until a more refined moment for that!

              most of the lunch places 'round here have overbattered fish - I was hoping for a solid recommendation... I think I might take grandgourmand's suggestion PJ O'Brien's ...

                  can you believe I wasn't able to get out for lunch! so on the way home I stopped at British style. I am intrigued, however, and have plans to go with a friend this Friday!

                Have you tried the F&C at Duke of Westminster? Any good? I have to meet some friends there for lunch next week.

                  Too bready. I had them at the Duke of Devon, though, which is the same thing but different bank building. Not bad, though, relative to the rest of the menu.

                    okay, well I like haddock but not crazy about bready. So I might try my chances on something else. Thanks
