If you are walking into Lafayette Street in SoHo and see a little door saying, “The Ship”, do walk in and you’ll surely have a pleasant surprise.
One of our Contributors, Lygia Santos, was there the other night and tried their amazing drinks and delicious food.
Take a look at her review:
“When I walked into the bar, founded in 2014, Cervantes Ramirez, one of the owners, hosted me and gave me a tour around the place. He is also the head bartender at the place and very well known in the New York bar scene.
The drinks were both very refreshing and perfect for the NY summer: the Sangria with gin, allspice dram, pinot noir, orange, lemon, served on cracked ice and a traditional Pina Colada.
If you are not a huge fan of cocktail drinks, it’s ok! You can have one of their excellent draft beers or try their wine list. Oh! The “Bartender’s Choice” is always a good pick if you’re the adventurous type!
The kitchen, managed by Chef Lucas Cerqueira (Brazilian born), is simple, yet very tasty.
I started with a Slow Cooked Octopus with celery root puree, horseradish and sunomono. Then I tried the Citric Ceviche served with red onion, fluke, cilantro and leech de tigre.
They were both amazing, but If you don’t enjoy seafood, there are other options too like the Chicken Liver Foie Gras, Charcuterie, a Korean style BBQ called Kalbi Sliders and even small bites like the Artichoke Feta Cheese Spread and the Homemade Ricotta.
Robert Jamieson, the owner’s friend, is responsible for the decor which portrays the inside of a Ship. Very cool!"
