Le Sia is permanently closed
When you take your first look at the tables around you at Le Sia, you may have trouble figuring out what type of food this East Village spot serves. Some groups wear bibs and gloves and share big bowls of boiled crawfish. Other tables are covered in noodles and various kebabs. This one-room spot just off Cooper Square serves Chinese and Cajun food - some dishes are entirely Chinese or Cajun, while others are a combination of the two. We like the Chinese-style jambalaya and the large format seafood boils, which you can order at different levels of spiciness. Then, there's the big bowl of fried rice, which is crunchy and rich, and comes loaded with crawfish tails. This is a fun spot to come with a group of friends who agree that the best complement to spicy food is another round of cheap soju.
