Camille Becerra is back cooking on the Lower East Side this week. Now, that’s a name we’ve not heard in many years.
Becerra just teamed up with newcomer cafe Henrie over on Forsyth Street. She’s the first in a guest chef program that kicks off tomorrow. Her residency – “Dragon Bowls + Broth” – will run through February 21.
“The bowls will be beautiful, healthful and thoughtful, offering different daily selections,” Becerra says in a public statement. “Grain, vegetable, greens, pickles, nuts and a choice of sauces like poppy seed salsa, carrot harissa yogurt and preserved lemon-beet tahini and gentleman’s relish, to these one can add a tea and ginger poached chicken, Persian meatballs or turmeric pickled eggs.”
The former owner of Brooklyn’s Paloma, and Top Chef contestant, was last in these parts in conjunction with APL. You remember – that disaster of a restaurant on Orchard Street some five years ago. It was a pre-launch implosion; she parted ways before the joint even opened.
Cafe Henrie opened at 110 Forsyth back in September, and is the creation of Andre Saraiva, a popular street artist (“Mr. A”) who’s responsible for those grinning stick figures around the neighborhood, as well as the former owner of Le Baron.
