Yerba Buena New York Reviews
Delicious Pan-Latin cuisine but so slow service! Jan 21, 2013
A Pan-Latin restaurant in Lower East Side of NYC, Yerba Buena is a small restaurant that offers an intimate ambience with its dimly lit space.
The food is great food. The staff friendly. Prices is moderately priced to expensive - about $55 for a 3-course meal. I recommend:
- Empanadas de Camaron with shrimp, manchego cheese, pineapple salad, chile de arbol salsa
- Causa de Tuna (tuna tartar, potato salad, aji amarillo, crispy wonton)
- Causa de Langosta (butter poached lobster salad, potato puree, huancaina-caviar sauce, shiso, crispy quinoa) *highly recommended*
- Lechon (Suckling pig carnitas, habanero-orange salsa
cactus salad, chicharron)
- Parihuela (Seafood stew, shrimp, fluke, clams, mussels, ginger Peruvian corn, rocotto)
My biggest problem? The service. It took 15 minutes for them to take our order and another 30 minutes for our appetizer to arrive, and another 20 minutes for the entree and 10 minutes for dessert. Overall, it took an hour of us just waiting in between food. We were seated at 0845pm and didn't leave until 1100pm.
I recommend this restaurant for the food. Just don't arrive starving. Otherwise, the wait for the food just feels even longer...
