Que Chevere is a small Puerto Rican stall tucked away in a nook at The Market Line (downstairs from Essex Market). If you’re having trouble finding this place, look for the neon blue man with a cane and a fedora. Some of the items like the moist pollo asado (marinated in a sofrito sauce for three days) with fall-off-the-bone meat and the tender pernil are so well-seasoned that they’re still great without any accompaniments. But the mofongo, pastelillos, and alcapurria really benefit from Que Chevere’s variety of sauces. (The thin green one has a serious kick.) The portions are huge, so come here when your stomach is so empty it’s starting to make unflattering noises.

Casa Adela

This Puerto Rican restaurant is an East Village staple. Stop by for mofongo and pernil, and feel free to BYOB.

Mighties review image

Mighties is a burger spot in The Market Line on the LES that's never too busy. They use high-quality, grass-fed meat that's outrageously beefy in all the right ways.

Essex Pearl review image

Essex Pearl in the Market Line on the Lower East Side has a seafood-heavy, Southeast Asian menu, and it's great for a casual date.
