East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar

Drawing influences from the diverse eighth street in New York’s East Village, East 8 serves Asian fusion tapas. There are skewers—like chicken thigh ($10), pork belly ($10) and seafood ($10)—a nod to the street’s yakitori parlours, a raw bar (with dressed up sashimi including hamachi with caviar ($15)) and desserts reminiscent of the stuff at Japanese patisseries such as banana tempura ($12) as well as coconut panna cotta with pandan and gula melaka ($12).
