    Miss McGrath's Irish nachos at Dram Shop
    This gloriously junky platter pays homage to Ireland's preferred starch, swapping tortilla chips out for excellent skin-on fries. The spuds are just crispy enough to survive the onslaught of melted white cheddar and jack, salty bits of crispy bacon, green onion, sour cream and spicy pickled carrots. 339 9th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves, Park Slope, Brooklyn (718-788-1444). $9.

    Pork-skin nachos at R Lounge
    Credit brothers Bruce and Eric Bromberg (Blue Ribbon) for luring us to an unlikely 'hood---Times Square---for midtown's best new bar snack: crunchy, crackly chicharrns, dressed with a bright flurry of cilantro, queso fresco, and green and red jalapeos. 714 Seventh Ave between 47th and 48th Sts (212-261-5200). $15.

    Rough-cut tuna nachos at Mesa Grill
    Bobby Flay's Southwestern eatery delivers this high-low hybrid of nachos and tuna tartare. Use the chips to scoop tender hunks of raw fish, punched up by briny capers and slicked with avocado crema and mango hot sauce. 102 Fifth Ave between 15th and 16th Sts (212-807-7400). Lunch $12, dinner $15.
