Where to Get the Best Nachos in NYC

Anybody who sells a plate of nachos in New York must have asked themselves these same questions, and I'm in the business of getting answers. I've been hunting for the hottest, meltiest, cheesiest, most shareable plate of 'chos in the city.

    You don't expect to see nachos on the menu at River Styx, a very Brooklyn restaurant; but there they are, and they're damn good too. Perhaps this is what irony has become these days.

    The star topping is a ground beef chili made with Rogue Brewery's Chipotle Ale, and it's balanced with pickled banana peppers in place of jalapeños, a charred corn salsa, sliced avocado, and crema.

    Because of the compartmentalized nature of the toppings, this is a plate of nachos that invites competition: you better get in there and start scoopin' guac before your buddy does.

    With the combined power of three salsas, crema, and the tastiest cheese sauce I tried, this pile of finger-licking fat and carbs is capable of Captain Planet-level degrees of awesomeness, giving you rich hot, and tangy flavors in each bite.

    Take it over the top for $1 more by adding a meat of your choice (you want the chorizo). Nachos and a glass of wine or a beer on a weeknight for just about $10 pre-tip? That's not a bad deal.

    Tangy cheese sauce and crema are ladled over chips already covered with melty, stretchy cheese along with some fresh sweet corn, black beans, cilantro, pico de gallo, pickled jalapeños, and a scoop of guacamole. It's the true cheese-lover's nacho.

    It'll take you a few bites to expose the pool of cheese sauce underneath, but once you do, the dipping begins and won't end until the whole platter is cleared.

    Every one of the freshly-fried chips gets some form of topping or another. And with some nachos, there is a winner in the toppings category.
