Williamsburg has a South American restaurant in Zero Latitude. Actually, we’re not sure whether it can be called a South American restaurant since it serves Spanish tortilla, a hummus dip, and palek paneer, but chef-owner Eduardo Polit (formerly chef at Frederick’s Downtown and before that a sous-chef at Soho House) was born in Ecuador, and many of his dishes were inspired by a five-month trip around the continent before the opening. He’s calling his two-day-old joint a café, and as you can see from the interior shot that follows, it’s a stripped-down affair — but take a glance at the menu and you’ll see there are culinary aspirations (“risotto con pollo”?). For spring, Polit is working on getting fresh spondylus (a rare scalloplike mollusk prized for its colorful shell) and other delicacies from his native country.
