When my girl and I walked into this small eatery we were expecting your typical Latin fare with a twist—but typical it was not. The vibe was cozy but chic and the décor minimal with close attention to detail.

El Baron Restaurant

There are tons of Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian, restaurants that can fulfill cravings when we miss mami’s cooking, but have you ever thought of the Latin countries that don’t represent as hard on the restaurant scene? El Salvador is one of those places, and it was refreshing to sample a little taste of home from this wonderful country.

This humble looking cevicheria was definitely a nice gift to the Lower East Side. As soon as I walked in I felt like I had traveled to some random local joint on the beach in Mexico. If you chat with the owner, Allan Feldman—businessman turned chef—you'll learn that all the furnishings in this restaurant have a story. You may also find out that theyve run out of some dishes, since everything is made to order with fresh, local ingredients.

Pepperoni pizza, nachos, buffalo wings—I already feel like I’ve gained a few pounds just talking about it, yuck.
