A block down from a fish n’ chips shack on Nostrand Avenue that’s been closed for months, a new, family-run seafood/soul food take-out spot opened about a month ago to fill the void. EfV decided to look past the pun-y name, “71.Ate,” and sample the fried whiting and chips. After a good dose of salt, they were delicious, mostly because they were fried “dark.” But the best part was when the woman behind the counter offered a sample of the house-made banana pudding. We’ll be back for that, no doubt.
