Once a much-loved karaoke bar, the iconic neighbourhood space in New York’s Chinatown has undergone a warm yet minimal transformation that goes by the name of Lalito. With chef Gerardo Gonzalez at the helm, along with his Australian partners Ben dos Remedios and Mateusz Lilpop, Gonzalez brings together a menu packed with Mexican American fare inflected with standout flavours from around the globe. Offering inspired concoctions such as chilli strawberries, mole Bulgarian feta, chamoy char sui ribs and sweet plantain pie, Lalo will take you around the world and back.
