Chef/owner Aarón Sanchez is the son of Zarela Martinez, and with Paladar he’s done for Lower East Side foodies what his mother did for their older, uptown counterparts: created a colorful, lively circus of a restaurant that’s equal parts serious cooking and serious partying. Seafood is the standout on Sanchez’s bold pan-Latino menu. The bar in front is always packed, and with good reason: the house specialty drinks, like a tangy mojito, are killer.Brunch
