๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—

Bienvenido, Baby Brasa!

Chef/Entrepreneur/Model/Singer/Actor Franco Noriega is more than just quintuple threat, heโ€™s leading the charge on Peruvian Chicken in NYC with his lively West Village restaurant, Baby Brasa. Opened just a few years back, the former star-turned-restauranteur Franco has established himself as one of the elite Peruvian chefs in NYC. As seen on Ellen, ABC, and Live with Kelly and Ryan, Franco emphasizes the freshness of the ingredients, as well as the traditional Peruvian methods of cooking. This all organic Peruvian spot is typically a sit-down restaurant, however, we’re ditching the wait time and bringing this premier partner straight to you.

While the traditional Peruvian chicken is not to be missed, some of their other dishes are absolute standouts as well. The ceviche is an unforgettable mix of flounder, two types of corn, onions, sweet potatoes, and a refreshing mix of citrus juices.

The Lomo Saltado, one of the most popular Peruvian dishes, is a must-try as well. It is a stir-fry combining marinated strips of sirloin with onions, tomatoes, french fries, and other spices; Served with perfectly cooked Peruvian rice. Take your tastebuds for a dip and get the delicately cooked salmon with a passion fruit reduction sauce, served with white rice.

With so many great options, youโ€™re sure to find the perfect dish for lunch.

Mangia Manchi!

Okay, this place is not Italian, but the food is great! From the tastebuds behind Bombay Sandwich Co. comes a new and exciting Indian restaurant, emphasizing the flavors of Southern India. The eatery, which means โ€˜goodโ€™ in Telugu, presents food from the Andhra region of Southern India in a fast-casual dining setting. Manchiโ€™s vegetable-forward and gluten-free menu is composed of core dishes found in the region.

Enjoy fresh and delicious proteins like cracked chicken or cracked chickpea tofu, with a base of either quinoa, rice, or kale salad, and toppings like spiced veggies including eggplant, cauliflower, potato, and rainbow slaw.

The Classic Curried Chicken Bowl features curried cracked chicken with eggplant, string beans, rainbow slaw, and Indian yoghurt sauce, served over rice. Want something completely different? Try The Detox, a large bowl of kitchari, a savory Indian porridge made with lentils, rice, carrots, peas, and ghee (clarified butter).

Manchi Bojanam! (Enjoy your meal!)
