La Sirena Clandestina is a Fulton Market restaurant housed in a former warehouse building that has an industrial style. If you feel like you’ve heard that before it’s because you have. So does La Sirena Clandestina separate itself at all? Yup. And it’s doing so by serving some pretty good Brazilian-inspired food.

Located squarely in Fulton Market, La Sirena isn’t actually that big of a place. But like a Joe Pesci character, what La Sirena lacks in size it makes up for in personality, minus the fact nobody there will stab you with a pen. What we mean is this restaurant is always loud and buzzing with conversation, in the fun but not overbearing on your eardrums kind of way. It’s Perfect For Date Night or even Dinner With The Parents.

Food Rundown

Empanadas

The flavors change, but there’s always a meat and vegetarian option. You’re going to want one for yourself.

Ceviche

Seafood ceviche consisting of octopus, shrimp, mahi, vegetables, and a gazpacho mojo. Use the house-made crackers as a conduit to eat the ceviche. Good stuff.

Elotes

Standard elote served served on the cob but cut up into small pieces. Decent.

Summer Bean Salad

A mix of vegetables, herb vinagrette, blue cheese, and marcona almonds. We like blue cheese, but it’s a bit overpowering in this salad. The rest of the mix is good though, so unless you’re a huge blue cheese nut we’d get it on the side.

Tomato and Burrata

Solid burrata and tomatoes.

Whole Fried Fish

The fish changes, but it’s always lightly fried with peanuts, cilantro, fresno, and serrano hot sauces.

Feijoada

A great large plate. A mix of short ribs, pork shoulder, linguica, rice, black beans, greens, salsa, and farofa. There’s a lot going on and it’s a really good meaty dish. Great for sharing.
