Executive chef Julieta Ballesteros has teamed up with owner Francisco Decrescenzo to open Tavo in the West Village. The menu offers globally inspired dishes, from Peking Duck Carnitas for two, with braised duck marinated in a citrus-teriyaki sauce and served with agave leaves, to Lollipop Lamb Chops, grilled rack of lamb dipped in chocolate-habanero sauce, sprinkled with gold dust, and served with pistachio pesto and a corn cake make with broccoli and goat cheese.

Open daily for dinner, with brunch on weekends.
