Beyond Pickles and Matzo

With gentrification comes new and exciting things to eat—and not just for yuppies. Behold the latest in the Rivington Street corridor.

  1. 1. Bondi Road

    153 Rivington St., nr. Suffolk St.; 212-253-5311

    At this surfer-themed fish-and-chips shop, diners select entrées from a list of imported Australian and New Zealand seafood and then ask to have it grilled, sautéed, or battered and fried.

  2. 2. Bruschetteria

    92 Rivington St., nr. Ludlow St.; 646-415-8681

    Perhaps hoping to corral the spillover crowd from nearby ’inoteca, this sunny little shop serves panini and bruschetta plus wines by the glass or bottle.

    133 Norfolk St., nr. Rivington St.; 212-375-1500

    Is Michael Ayoub of Williamsburg’s Fornino angling to be tagged America’s most trusted pizza man? The former Cucina chef has brought his pizza obsession and homegrown herbs to the Lower East Side.

  4. 4. Kampuchea Noodle Bar

    78-84 Rivington St., nr. allen St.; 212-529-3901

    Former Fleur de Sel managing partner Ratha Chau sheds the fancy French trappings for Southeast Asian street food, focusing on the regional specialties from his native Cambodia. Opening on November 21.
