In the mood for something fresh and savory? Well, luckily for you, we know just the place. Identified by their motto, “fresh not fancy”, Cevich is a delicious option for a revitalizing lunch to replenish you during those long, dreary afternoons (we all have them!). Whether it’s a personal treat or a full office fiasco, Cevich is perfect for any occasion! Now, the real question is, are you brave enough to try ceviche?
Ceviche’s origins can be traced back to South America over 2,000 years ago; however, the modern dish that we know and love today is believed to be created after Spanish settlers brought citrus fruits to the region and infused them with Japanese flavors. Ceviche, at its core, is “fresh seafood that is ‘cold cooked’ in a marinade of citrus juices, spices, chilies, red onion, & cilantro” (cevich.com). Cool, right?
At Cevich, they serve over 5 different styles of ceviche in all different forms; from tacos and burritos to quinoa bowls, there’s a ton to try! Now, if it weren’t for friends, entrepreneurs, and restaurateurs Reina Laws & Lindsay Goldstein, we may not have this South American delicacy in Manhattan! After working on projects together in Miami Beach, the two women teamed up to combine New York style with traditional South American flare. The result was Cevich, a laid back store in Union Square with a fun, beach vibe!
So, when you’re craving a unique, savory lunch option, keep Cevich in mind! There are so many opportunities to try new and exciting dishes such as Wild Tiger Style Ceviche and Mexidorian Ceviche Tacos, not to mention burritos and bowls galore! The best part is that they aim to offer high protein, low carb and low fat, gluten free, paleo and dairy free dishes. This means…ceviche for all! Make sure to stop by or let us help you bring Cevich to the office, we’re sure you’ll love it!
