Ligaya Mishan is a big fan of chef Gerardo Gonzalez's new Lower East Side restaurant El Rey Coffee Bar and Luncheonette: "Farm-to-table cooking is familiar now, but rarely have I seen it done with such an eye for color and a sense of riot. At El Rey, plates are overgrown with dark leafy stems, lacy fennel loops and crushed avocado, pickled red onions and crescents of Cara Cara orange like a downed sunset." [NYT]
