Lalo

Gerardo Gonzalez brought his breezy brand of Cal-Mex eats to New York at the acclaimed Lower East Side luncheonette El Rey, but that diminutive 15-stool space wasn’t big enough to house his culinary ambitions. After leaving the café in April, the San Diego native expanded with this 50-seat Chinatown eatery, transforming the former Winnie’s space with mango-yellow banquettes, navy vinyl-trimmed chairs and a penny-tile bar that seats 11. (The Winnie’s exterior hasn’t been changed, in respect to the former tenant.) Gonzalez pads his menu with border-crossing plates: Green mole is dressed with Bulgarian feta and hibiscus chutney; clam chowder is stirred with coconut milk and studded with smoked sable; and baby back ribs marry Mexican sour-plum sauce with Chinese char siu.
