Located in the heart of Herald Square and at the tip of K-Town, The Harold is a bistro I did not expect to find there: good food and nice service, the menu offers a good variety of dishes that can satisfy a wide range of customers. I admit that I went there to try their lobster roll, but, unfortunately, they served it only for lunch.
After eating some grilled bread that they brought to the table, our appetizer, the flight of dips, came.
Served with grilled pita, it was composed of grilled eggplant, spicy feta, white beans and tzatziki. This was delicious, the spicy feta being was of my favorites. But, I wish there was a bit more of everything. This is a perfect appetizer to share and to open your appetite.
Then came the fish tacos.
The presentation was beautiful, being colorful. These were decent fish tacos, made with some heavenly crispy cod, a citrus salsa and an ancho chili creme fraiche.
Last was Fish and Chips.
The fish, that might have been cod, was dipped in a tempura batter that was deliciously crispy; it was perfectly cooked, moist and flakey. It was served with mushy peas that I did not really care about, and French fries that were decent.
This was overall a good meal and I surely did not expect it. Would I go back? Definitely. I would probably try their brunch, where they have few eggs Benedict options, as well as the lobster roll I really wanted to try...
Enjoy (I did)!
