We’re into tacos. You probably are too. But you shouldn’t get them here. The fish tacos at this counter-service taqueria on the second floor of the Tin Building food hall come with a tiny portion of fried flounder and way too much cabbage. It’s like having a spicy slaw taco drizzled with more aioli than you need. While the roasted chicken taco is nicely seasoned, the actual meat is overcooked and chopped into small charred and crispy pieces. You can hardly tell you’re eating chicken. Since you won’t be able to hit every place in the Tin Building in one visit anyway, this is one of the spots to skip.

Seeds & Weeds

Seed & Weeds is the only place to eat in the Tin Building with views of the East River. You'll enjoy their vegan and vegetarian dishes even if you're an avid meat eater.

This seafood counter with a huge raw bar in the Tin Building by Jean-Georges is great for some oysters followed by something greasy like a salad with fried clams and shrimp.
