The Early Word–La Barra


The facade of the hapless La Barra, still waiting for its liquor license as restaurants all around dispense booze by the gallon

Well, maybe this Word isn’t so Early, after all: La Barra (“The Sandbar”) has been open since last November. Fork in the Road didn’t become aware of it until recently, when we attended the Guactacular at Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Without knowing who made what, we readily declcared #2 the best guacamole, later discovering that it had been whipped up by La Barra, a place on the Lower East Side that characterizes itself as a “Cevicheria,” and has the neon to prove it.
