We didn't eat, as we were just meeting friends, so decided to have a drink, very good cocktails. Waitress was very nice and really looked after us. Cant comment on the food, but it looked good.

Had dinner and noticed many people were drinking frozen mojitos which are very popular. Food and salsas were good and unique. Looked liked a very popular happy hour.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
