About Mancora restaurant and Bar
A Trip to Peru by Way of the East Village
When it comes to certain cuisines, Manhattan addresses raise eyebrows and suspicions. Here? In the East Village? Peruvian? It can't be the real thing.
Fans expect to travel closer to communities of native cooks to find restaurants that cater to the most discerning palates, Peruvian or otherwise.
Mancora caters to East Villagers, and a raucous subset of them at that. Its jaunty room, an explosion of seashell chandeliers, octopus murals and fish nets, is buoyant with sangria-sipping crowds and South American soundtracks, especially on weekends.
Its owner, Shahed Ahmed, worked in Peruvian restaurants in Texas before opening Mancora's first location on Smith Street in Brooklyn three years ago. Last March he opened a branch in Manhattan, on a corner better known for barhopping and Bangladeshi buffets than Peru's beloved ceviches and bargain-priced rotisserie chickens.
Enrique Peraldo, the chef of both restaurants, skews classics toward the mainstream, with sauces that are milder than you would expect, and presentations that are fancier. The servers — a smiling, sprinting bunch, many of whom hail from Lima — trumpet traditional specialties, like chicha morada, a spicy-sweet pineapple punch infused with cloves, lemon and cinnamon, and tinted with purple corn.
Authentic tapas and rotesserie chicken is magnificent! Drink Specials and Happy Hour is a real Joy!
