MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Fried, wood-grilled, simmered, steamed or raw. No, it’s not a line from Forrest Gump. As long as it swims, you can have it any way you want it at BlackSalt. It’s all fish, all the time at this market-cum-restaurant in Palisades. There is a lively, bistro vibe here, where the bar is made for a cocktail and a platter of freshly shucked oysters; while private booths appeal to a sophisticated, mature crowd. The concise menu trawls coast to continent for inspiration, with dishes such as fried Ipswich clams and fish tacos to Provençal stew. Bigeye tuna tartare is silky; and potato-crusted skate wing is topped with a fragrant brown butter-mustard vinaigrette. Hit the market on the way out for gourmet items to stock the pantry and soups to fill the freezer.
