THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Alias Restaurant Review

: Little has changed since the time that a small Dominican restaurant occupied this space. Well, at least on the outside. Inside you’ll find sleek leather banquettes that line rugged, exposed-brick walls. On the Lower East Side's unlikely restaurant row, Wylie Dufresne acolyte Scott Ehrlich cooks pared-down contemporary food for cheap---no entrée is more than $18. Hip bargain-hunters come for starters such as lamb spare ribs fragrantly crusty with fennel seed and coriander, and skate fishcake nicely balanced with creamy avocado aïoli. The menu is short and concise, but it's still difficult to choose between winners like chewy (in a good way) hanger steak in Dijon jus and sautéed head-on shrimp coated with allspice. Stuck for a place to satisfy your group of different tastes and budgets? Alias is the likeable answer.
