Description: ' La Cerveceria introduces Latin American tapas with sharp Peruvian influences and a concentration on American craft beers and new world wine from the realms of small and landmark producers. ' La Cerveceria celebrates a host of lime-influenced, cilantro-specked dishes. Crafted from the freshest ingredients available including organic and locally harvested finds, the restaurant builds upon the complex, classic flavors of Latin America, including marinated meats, seafood spice, hot habaneros dressed in flavorful sauces and subtle ceviches traditionally found south of the equator. With spice that has top toques raving, it goes down well with ' La Cerveceria’s standout list of New World suds. Our downtown New York City location, designed with natural woods, a marble bar, and a bright open kitchen that adds further warmth and provides the ideal setting for this new concept. Like the cuisine itself, ' La Cerveceria dining experience is updated, clean and high energy.

“Amazing NYC Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Was in NYC this weekend visiting friends and celebrating my girlfriend's birthday and we were looking for a place to eat Saturday night. We were looking for a Tapas restaurant and came across this place on Open Table. Open Table said they didn't have any available ability (we were looking for places about an hour before we wanted to eat). So we called the restaurant directly and they said they would be able to get us a table for four people, no problem. When we got there, they had saved us a table and we were able to sit immediately - even though the restaurant was clearly packed and no other tables were available. As soon as we sat down, we knew we came to the right place. It's hard to say what was better, the service or the food. Every plate that was delivered (and there were many that night) seemed to be better than the one before it. The staff seemed to truly apprecaite that we had come to thier restaurant and were absolutely fantastic. Amazing food and a unbelieveably priced wine list rarely foud in NYC (got a great bottle of Cabernet for under $40). We are in NYC all of the time and La Cerveceria is sure to be a 'must dine' for us going forward.

“An East Village Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

I searched for tapas in the Living Social app, and this place had a deal. I didn't know what to expect...I was blown away! We had to make a reservation because it was a Saturday night. It was easy and we were able to be accommodated. We had a table that was right next to the open door patio, which was perfect because it was a beautiful night. The food was OUTSTANDING! I shared the salmon plate and the fish tacos which both had complex and delicious flavor palettes. The red sangria was perfection. And the service provided by Raphael was top notch! The prices are below average for NYC, and the portions are generous. I will definitely be returning.

“OUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IN NEW YORK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have been lucky enough to spend one month in New York (September) staying in the Lower East Side so we've been spoiled for great restaurants, but La Cerveceria is our favourite of all.

Firstly the location is fabulous- the outdoor courtyard on the street front (2nd Avenue) is so atmospheric. and the food which is Peruvian tapas, is just amazing.

We came here on a voucher deal and it made no difference to the wonderful service we received.
Every dish we tried was mouthwateringly great - so great that we will spend our last night in New York having a return visit to this great restaurant.

“Great tapas and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants in the East Village! Great selection of craft beers and the food is even better. The food menu is advertised as tapas (small portions) but the serving sizes are generous.

If the weather is good, plan to sit outside under the canopy and enjoy the sights!

Yumshki! Delicious brunch offerings and drinks. Staff was attentive and pleasant. Will return to check it out at night. Great locale, perfect place to begin or end an evening or start a morning.
