Maharlika Filipino Moderno

After the success of their brunch-only pop-up at Resto Leon, new-wave Filipino darlings Nicole Ponseca and Enzo Lim have finally found a permanent home in the East Village. Fans of their daytime fare can revisit hits like eggs Imelda (poached eggs on pan de sal with taro leaves, coconut milk and prawns) and Sizzling Sisig (a spiced mix of shredded pig’s snout, ear, cheek and belly). New to this iteration: dinner plates, including Southeast Asian spins on American classics, like chicken and purple-yam waffles and a spiny-lobster roll laced with fermented shrimp-paste mayo. Lim, also a barkeep at Minetta Tavern, slings tropical concoctions, such as the Manileño, which mixes brandy, pineapple, maraschino, Peychaud's Bitters and lime.
