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.
