Rustic L.E.S is a small Moroccan/ Mediterranean style bistro in the lower east side of Manhattan. Located just 2 blocks east of Clinton Street on Ridge Street between Rivington and Stanton St. Our quaint dining room with vintage charm, provides a warm and inviting setting, for our patrons to feel at home.
Reminiscing on a vintage New York City, we imagined a time when food was not rushed or pretentious. Food that was made simply and organically. Our aim is to create wholesome & hearty dishes. Made with natural, organic ingredients. With everything made from scratch.
We strive to be part of more local sourcing practices to offer authentic “old world” cooking techniques to our customers. In our daily operation, we chose to contribute to small farms’ economical growth. Sustainability is the key to a better future. Your business supports these local farmers in the process, each of us thanks you!
