Mongers Market + Kitchen

American Cafe, Deli/Sandwich ShopLower East$10-$25

East Coast oysters are plump and mild, and the tuna ceviche is bright from kabosu and ginger. A burrata panzanella is unorthodox but shows range. The Grilled Little Gem deconstructs Caesar salad, but is nowhere near as boring as that implies. Tangy Alabama fried green tomatoes shine in a greaseless crab cake "sammy."

Native Family

American CafeDowntown$10-$25

Midwestern details appear in the food as well as the hand-embroidered aprons here. The Cubicano uses the classic components of a Cuban sandwich, but with ballpark Bertman's mustard and "Detroit Pickles." The cheese and charcuterie boards use La Quercia salami from Iowa and Smoking Goose cured sausage from Indiana. The menu is far from predictable, though, as you'll find sardines on toast served as a zesty compote.
