The lowdown

As their follow-up to the Bed-Stuy hit Hart’s, partners Nialls Fallon and chef Nick Perkins have opened a casual, fun wine-and-seafood bar at the eastern end of Canal Street. The menu takes its cues from the Iberian peninsula and leans heavily on dishes you want to dig in to eat with your hands: fried shrimp heads, octopus-and-mussel escabeche, and even a flattened half chicken, roasted with piri piri and served next to a mound of slim French fries. The wine list is lovely, too, first because it offers all sorts of unexpected, “natural”–leaning bottles, and second because the prices are exceptionally reasonable.
