Chef-owner John Manion spent years traveling in Latin America, and so his Fulton Market neighborhood joint, La Sirena Clandestina, serves what he calls "Latin local" cuisine. The Brazilian-focused menu offers empanadas and ceviche and all sorts of meats, but the best choice is to order off-menu and get "the big meat plate." It’s "really good cuts of meat, treated with respect," Manion says, and it’s designed to be shared with friends. Ask for it and you’ll get it, and you’ll also get new friends. "When people see it," Manion says, "they want it."
