Delicious! Dollar oysters on Sunday and Monday. Hands down best ceviche I've ever had! I gotta get the recipe. Solid wine selection. Unique dishes with a South American twist/fusion. Highly recommend this place...especially if you love seafood. Atmosphere is perfect for a date if you don't mind sitting at a bar. Staff was very friendly. Enjoy :)

Don't let the tiny hole-in-the-wall appearance fool you, for this is a very special place, clearly a work of love and passion by its owner in the heart of the East Village. Ceviche is the specialty (the lobster ceviche was the highlight), but there is also a handful of other dishes (including a fantastic grilled octopus, and the signature tea-smoked... More

I really enjoyed the ceviche that we tried. It is made in front of you at the bar and was very nice. The place itself worked for us because we really used it as a snack before dinner. However if you were going to eat there as a main meal you wouldn't have much choice beyond the raw fish. I... More

This restaurant doesn't get a favorable review from me largely because I was expecting something different (a traditional ceviche bar) and the food wasn't good. The information on Desnuda's website is outdated. The menu is old (not the current menu) and no hours are listed. We arrived before the restaurant opened and had to wait two hours until opening (other... More

If you're curious enough to have gotten this far in your research, you've arrived. The other reviews cover it all - this place is amazing beyond belief. Now go. Just go.

Situated in a cool part of town and serving up incredible ceviche and excellent wines, this place is a must try when in NYC! Not really advisable if there is a group of you due to size, however if you are a couple it is definitely worth the short wait. Lobster and scallops were both incredible!! Will definitely be back...

This was a great little ceviche place. Everything is cooked in front of you. The sashimi dishes were also very good as was the truffle popcorn. This restaurant is hidden and not very well sign posted but that adds to the allure. It is a small restaurant not really suitable for large groups but very cosy and romantic for couples.... More

My wife and I visited Desnuda in the East Village with great expectations. We knew from our research that it was a narrow bar setting with approximately 16 seats and a collection of ceviche options. We also knew about the smoked oysters. Well Ladies and Gentlemen Desnuda delivered off the charts. Reason 1 Tea Smoked Oysters - prepared with the... More

Looking on internet for a delicious ceviche restaurant while visiting New York, la Desnuda was highly recommended by many traveling websites. I decided to have dinner there with my boyfriend and it was a very romantic dinner. The place is very small, you eat at bar with candlelight. The staff is very helpful. The ceviches are original with fresh and... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
