SNACKS AND THE CITY: Yellowfin Tuna Tacos From Brasserie Ruhlmann



Right in the heart of Rockefeller Center in NYC, the perfect bite of fresh yellowfin tuna, jalapeno aioli and crunchy tortilla awaits you.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed looking for a place to have a bite in the Big Apple. So many places, so many menus. Where to go? What to order? Brasserie Ruhlmann is one well worth a visit for the mini yellowfin tuna tacos appetizer in of itself.

Sitting innocently on the ‘bar food’ menu, these bites are perfect for a light afternoon snack to get you through the hour or two before dinner. (Or order dinner here, for that matter, you won’t regret it!)

Tiny taco shells are stuffed with just the right bite of yellowfin tuna, a jalapeno aioli, (which I initially mistook for a creamy guac sauce upon first glance) thinly sliced radish and a splash of lime at your own discretion (do it!) are perfect with their spicy jalapeno margarita. (I like mine with mezcal.)

Yearning for more than a snack? Definitely consider their Lobster Roll or Sweet Corn Risotto with Poached Lobster. … Wow. It’s WOW levels of delicious. Or steak frites because French restaurant.

These would be fun to make at home, provided you find fresh sushi grade tuna. Incidentally, miniature taco shells like these are virtually impossible to find in stores, aside from the popular line of ‘Scoops’ you see in the chip aisle, which are good, but don’t have the legit look or ‘adorable’ factor that the real thing provides. If you’re really hankering for something mini in a taco shell, you’ve got to check out, which likely finds the bulk of its customers from the restaurant and catering industry, as they sell not only tiny shells but also the serving trays to serve them on.

Ruhlmann is one of those places that often deserves to be more crowded than it is. Why not stop by and grab a table!
