‘Baby Brasa’ will Begin Serving Peruvian Rotisserie on Allen Street Next Week

The neons are burning at 129 Allen Street. Get ready for some Peruvian rotisserie. Baby Brasa is days from delivery.
Upon opening next week – it’ll be a soft launch – Baby Brasa will offer an “intimate eating experience” via open-floor plan, in which chef and patron share the space. In this case, the culinary master is Franco Noriega, who happens to moonlight as a model (e.g. Dolce & Gabana, Burberry).
Menu is fairly simple and leans hard on the Peruvian Rotisserie chicken. Sides and appetizers include choices like quinoa, avocado toast, sweet potato fries, and rice and beans.
Noriega is also concurrently opening a sister location in Williamsburg later this year. The larger, 85-seat establishment was meant to open first, but delays abounded. Sick of waiting on the requisite permits, Noriega then decided to open the smaller 12-seat Baby Brasa here on the Lower East Side (hence, the name).
The store at 129 Allen was previously the Precision barbershop, which relocated down the block with a new identity, Allen Street Cut & Shave.
