La Señorita

Lower East Side
Marc "King" Solomon (A Cafe) griddles house-made panqueques (South American crêpes) at this Latin-accented spot. The toque fills his savory crêpes with Puerto Rican pollo fricassee (adobo chicken stew) and Dominican slow-cooked beef stew, while sweet options follow Argentine tradition, drizzled in dulce de leche. Solomon also deep-fries snacks (cuchifritos) like empanadas and tostones, and forks out French-Caribbean plates: escargot dressed in cilantro-chili sauce; rum-soaked prawns with curry; and duck pâté à l'orange. Drinks lean toward Latin America (Chilean vino, Medalla brews), as do the tunes, with Nuyorican dancehall beats filling the space. Shelves of Pop Art–style painted Campbell's soup cans span one wall, while another boasts a mural depicted '80s R&B diva Lisa Lisa Velez, accompanied by the lyrics of her hit "I Wonder If I Take You Home."

Called up and made a reservation for myself and some friends visiting from France. At 6:30 we were greeted with friendly service and cool music that set the scene. Shortly after, Marc stopped by to say hello to everyone and advised our group on the most delicious plates that I have had in a long while. I loved the duck but the gilled avocado special app as well as the shrimp were delicious. I'm going back just to make sure that I try everything on the menu and to get the playlist for some of the great music. Thanks!
