The Four-Year Anniversary menu will feature a fine selection of traditional Latin American fare with contemporary influences favored by La Pulperia’s loyal patrons over the years. For your enjoyment is the Cazuela de Pulpo served with Spanish chorizo, carrot puree, green peas, pickled red onions and mole poblano. A consistent favorite is the Brazilian Pacu Fish Ribs which is smothered in an orange chipotle BBQ sauce over coconut rice. El Salmon Brulee is cooked to perfection every time with verlasso salmon tartar, fromage brulee, strawberry & ginger leche de tigre, and micro bull blood greens.

Throughout the evening, friends and frequent diners will give cheers to the momentous occasion with specialty handcrafted cocktails made with the finest spirits and locally sourced, fresh seasonal ingredients. The La Pulperia UES cocktail mixes Viva tequila blanco with fresh pineapple, cilantro, lime juice, chipotle and with a house-made tajin salted rim. El Chilango is a favorite amongst La Pulperia diners and perfectly blends Tequila Cazadores Blanco, Cointreau orange liquor, tamarind nectar, habanero piquante with a salt rim. The Smoke Room cocktail is a flavorful mix of House mezcal & Milagro, passion fruit puree, fresh pomegranate juice and agave nectar.

About La Pulperia

Contemporary rustic Latin cuisine restaurant La Pulperia first opened on the Upper East Side in 2014, followed by two additional locations in Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown East. The restaurants are the creation of Victor Medina and Carlos Barroz, who also serves as the Executive Chef.  Named after the general stores found throughout South America, La Pulperia offers Barroz’s simple yet refined cuisine from the countries of Latin America with contemporary culinary influences from Spain and Italy. With interiors designed by Andres Gomez (Red Rooster, Whitehall, SoCo) La Pulperia draws inspiration from the authentic pulperias of South America, with handcrafted floor tiles from Mexico, reclaimed wood from Brazil on the ceiling and walls, and abundant shelving displaying top shelf liquor, fresh produce, and wine.

 Located at the intersection of Second Avenue and 84th Street, La Pulperia Upper East Side serves lunch and dinner all week, in addition to brunch on weekends.
