La Palapa Restaurant Review:

This East Village mainstay draws locals from brunch to late night. Diners enjoy vibrant dishes featuring duck, fish, steak and an abundant array of fresh herbs. Try the baked cod filet with Yucatecan green pumpkin seed sauce with toasted pumpkin seeds, saffron rice and sautéed Swiss chard. The menu darts around Mexico, offering regional specialties and even a few vegetarian dishes such as the two potato taquitos with guacamole, salsa de arbol, grilled cactus paddle and black beans.
