Chef Raymond Mohan, formerly of Colors, fuses Central and South American and Caribbean cuisines at his spot on Front Street. The décor fits the waterfront locale, with rough aqua walls, nautical-blue- and cream-striped banquettes, and multicolored bottles used as makeshift light fixtures. Seviches have equally bright flavors, like wild striped bass with fiery jalapeños offset by mandarin-orange bits and a scoop of passion-fruit sorbet. Small plates have substance that belies their size; rich pork belly surrounds a small heap of cabbage with pickled rice vinegar, all of it topped by a piquant potato croquette. Seafood options include a notable soft-shell-crab dish, served with a sweet white-carrot purée and a Peruvian-inspired salad of mango, jicama, and peppery aïoli. For meat, there’s an Argentine churrasco and a simple and attractive fried Lima chicken dish, garnished with onions soaked in lime juice. It’s the basil-ice-cream dessert, however, that the Guyana-born chef calls his signature; the refreshing eggless, mousselike concoction is finished with candied praline pumpkin seeds.
