Anyone else been?
My husband and I have gone to Gallito's a few times now. We are both originally from California and have been pleasantly satisfied by their food.
Although I'd prefer it if their fish tacos had the full-on traditional fixings, at least they're beer battered and fried - the way fish tacos are meant to be! **I can appreciate the cornmeal crusts and grilled fish tacos of other spots in NYC, but it really isn't the same.**
It seems the chef has some experience in higher end established, as evidenced by their how they prepare and present their main dishes, such as carne asada and pork pipian.
Lastly, their chilaquiles are quite excellent - it's now on our regular brunch rotation.
I should also point out their service is warm and attentive. I do hope this place does well - not sure if I'd categorize it as a destination restaurant (and well, not sure it would hold up against the competition if it were in California) but it does satisfy our Mexican cravings when we aren't able to trek out to other parts of the city.
