Allan Feldman has cooked fancy French at La Grenouille and New American at Veritas, and he returns to his Mexican (yes, Mexican) roots with La Barra, a diminutive cevichería on the Lower East Side. Joined in this seafood-centric venture by three childhood friends and former classmates at the American School in Mexico City, Feldman plans to offer a half-dozen versions of the flash-cured fish, ranging from red snapper to octopus. There are also vegetarian soups and seafood bisques, Argentine-style empanadas, and shrimp and chicken posoles, plus a raw bar and Latin American beer and wine. The storefront seats 22 (ten at the subway-tiled bar), and is open everyday until 1 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday for brunch.
