Yuca is one of my fav places in the city. Great drinks, really really tasty ceviche and the meat tapas are amazing! Plantain chips are divine!

Food is basic and all pre-made. I asked to remove mushrooms from a quesadilla and the waitress replied the food was all pre-made and cannot be altered. Service was poor to average. I would definitely not come back to this place. Very loud audience/ambience.

6 of us are & share two shared meat plates with a few tapas style staters. Yum! There was so much food and it was so good. The staff were great, drinks were delicious (sangria) & it was reasonably priced!

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
