Opening today is Icelandic Fish and Chips, an outpost of a restaurant that opened in 2006 in Reykjavik, Iceland, that proposes an elevated version of fish and chips, trying to make it healthier. How? Besides of using fresh fish, they replaced eggs and wheat with spelt. Spelt absorbs less oil and creates a lighter coating with still a crunchy texture. For chips, instead of frying potato wedges, they roast them in the oven before tossing them in parsley and Icelandic salt. If you are not really into potatoes, you can also go for the onion rings.
Beverage wise, they have wine, but more noticeable are the Icelandic beers (I tried an Linstock white ale brewed with coriander and orange) and cocktails (I tried one with Brennivin that is a sort of schnapps and apparently considered Iceland's signature distilled beverage).
Icelandic Fish and Chips is a nice addition to the New York restaurant scene and I wish them good luck for their opening!
Enjoy (I did)!
