This new project from the team who brought us the city’s first Mexican-Korean restaurant combines a Filipino kitchen with a Cuban bar. The red pleather booths and round bar stools of the spot’s previous tenant, the Whippoorwill, remain, but they’re joined by a pressed tin ceiling, sugar cane bunches and a graffiti Guernica. Kinilaw, the Filipino answer to pesce crudo, has all kinds of potential, but falls flat from lack of seasoning, as does an order of kare-kare, thick chunks of tender beef in a coconut and peanut sauce. Noodle dishes are the way to go here: the pancit pusit (cuttlefish ink noodles with a whole grilled baby octopus) is a springy, brightly seasoned treat. Much is made of the various mojitos on offer—“best in the city” the menu touts—but they’re too watery to warrant seconds.
