This time of year is all about roasting meats and cooking up hearty vegetables. With all of that heavy food, a break for some fresh fish is always welcome. Our classic tuna tartar has been updated to bring some Asian flavors to our Fall/Winter menu this year.
Before we add a new menu item at City Crab, we like to see how people respond to the concept. Typically, we offer a test dish as a special, letting our customers be the deciding factor if we add it to our regular menu or not.
Our new tuna tartare tacos have sold out within hours of its addition as a nightly special. We chose to replace the traditional crackers with fried wonton skins that mimic the shape of mini taco shells. Stuffing the shells with our fresh tuna and topping it with a mango salsa brings out the natural sweetness of the raw fish.
If you’ve had enough of the roasted squash, braised short ribs and cream heavy soups of the season, come try our tuna tartare tacos. And this Thursday happens to be National Taco Day, so if that isn’t a reason, we don’t know what is!
