Restaurant Review: Cevich – Union Square NYC
Cevich brings a brand new healthy food option to Union Square as New York City’s first grab-n-go Ceviche restaurant. This small but modern and relaxing restaurant offers a variety of dishes that blend traditional Peruvian recipes along with other culinary influences. Cevich’s dishes are fresh, affordable, customizable and gluten-free. Located in one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, Cevich is close to famous attractions such as the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, as well as many boutique and name brand shops. Under the direction of co-owners and operators Reina Laws and Lindsay Goldstein, Cevich will become a trusted brand of the Ceviche product in a rapidly growing food market.
Cevich offers a variety of dishes inspired by the ancient South American cuisine in which fresh fish and seafood is “cold cooked” in a marinade of citrus juices, spices and other ingredients such as chilies, red onions and cilantro. The origins can be traced to the coastal regions of South America and is believed to have been created after Spanish settlers brought citrus trees to the region and Japanese immigrants their new culinary techniques and flavors. Executive Chef Evelyn Alberto executes the menu with sauces made in house daily with local, fresh ingredients. Menu items range from ceviche burritos and tacos to 12 or 16 oz. ceviche bowls and entrée salads.
I got the Ceviche bowl with coconut rice, lime n da coconut (hold the red onion) and shrimp with avocado (not worth the $2 extra couldn’t even find the microscopic pieces) and Rocoto Sofrito hot sauce (that was amazing)
I loved it all except the price welcome to NYC! The food was fresh and light! If you order it with greens it’s perfect for gluten free and low carb diets!
Check this place out for something out of the ordinary and delicious!
