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.

The rich history of the lower east side’s past began when arriving immigrants made this neighborhood their home. Food from all over the world was available on any block.

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, to create a wholesome & hearty meal.

We aim to be part of those old school traditions and offer authentic old world cooking techniques to our patrons.

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!
