KM1 is a Caribbean restaurant that opened at the end of summer 2020 right near those handball courts on Houston Street in the East Village. In addition to burgers, ceviche, and honey-glazed jerk wings, the menu has a bunch of Dominican dishes like a vegan pastelon layered with mushrooms and coconut sauce, and some extremely crispy mofongo with skirt steak and a light tomato broth. They’re still waiting for their liquor license but, in the meantime, try one of their shaved ice frio frios (we like the tamarind one). You can stop by KM1 for their covered outdoor dining, call 646-669-7547 for pick-up, or place your delivery order online.
