PBR-battered fish tacos served in a graffiti-strewn Brooklyn setting? This taqueria has hipster central written all over it. Part gallery, part renovated loading dock, the restaurant is co-operated by Forest Cole, of Choncho’s Tacos at the Brooklyn Flea. The furniture was constructed using wood salvaged from Brooklyn Heights--including Borough Hall itself--and a ship abandoned off Staten Island. With a working fireplace in one room and a communal table in the other, the Loading Dock is ideal for a low-key date night (especially when the walls are opened out into the street in warm weather). Tortilleria Nixtamal in Queens prepares the tamales and tortillas daily, and the fish taco batter is properly fluffy with authentic toppings: a drizzle of crema, a few curls of cabbage. The space is quietly BYOB, which is good, since a solo fish taco will set you back $5.
