Avenue C mainstay Esperanto has opened its satellite location at 58 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
Esperanto Fonda, which has room for some 30 diners, also offers food to go. Per a recent preview at DNAinfo:
Esperanto Fonda will allow patrons to grab to-go-friendly items such as tacos, empanadas, burritos, and a Cubano sandwich with roasted pork loin, ham, melted Swiss cheese and mojo sauce.
The cocktail menu includes the Caipirinha, Mojitos and Brazilian Sangria. (Espernato Fonda's food or drink menus aren't online just yet.)
The previous tenant, BARA, a French/Japanese bar-restaurant, closed after service on June 11.
