By New York City standards, Alta Calidad in Prospect Heights is a short walk from the Brooklyn Museum. We had visited the exhibition Pierre Cardin: Future Fashion that’s there until January 5, 2020. It is the first NYC retrospective in forty years to focus on the legendary couturier.
We started with a Margie ($12) made perfectly with fresh ingredients. I recommend the cocktail as I do their guac that comes with four large tostadas (crisp tortillas) sprinkles with ground red pepper and served with red salsa ($13).
For our entrees, we split two orders of tacos ($13, two per order) on freshly made corn tortillas. Their roasted mahi-mahi tacos with a saffron-infused olive salad topped with crispy onions were tasty, yet we both preferred the crispy tempura shrimp and chorizo ones with celery root remoulade with salsa.
