If you’re looking for a place to sit down for some Dominican food in the East Village, try KM1. This Caribbean restaurant on East 1st Street opened in August 2020, and in addition to things like chicharron and honey-glazed jerk wings, the menu has a chimi burger, some extremely crispy mofongo with skirt steak and a light tomato broth, as well as non-meat Dominican options like a vegan pastelón layered with mushrooms and coconut sauce, and shrimp mofongo. 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). Stop by KM1 for their covered outdoor dining, call 646-669-7547 for pick-up, or place your delivery order online.
