Cervo’s, a restaurant founded by Nialls Fallon and chef Nick Perkins, has landed on Canal Street. Fallon and Perkins, the team behind Hart’s in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant, looked to the Iberian coastline to build the menu, which is filled with sustainable seafood and vegetable-heavy dishes including beef tartare with littleneck clams; oysters; prawns with sweet chile and oranges, and grass-fed lamb burgers topped with anchovies. Other things to note: all of the wine is from the Iberian Peninsula and the restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

This South Williamsburg spot is the third addition to the Loosie brand, which started with Loosie Rouge, a bar, and Loosie’s Kitchen, a restaurant serving Southern-style dishes. Now co-owners Damien del Rio, Vincent Marino, Max Peskowitz and Garry Knopov have opened an all-day café that looks as if it was plucked out of Miami and placed under the Williamsburg Bridge. Expect the basics — espresso, macchiato and flat whites — along with an extensive variety of organic wine and matcha (think fennel lemonade matcha and an Arnold Palmer matcha). The food menu is made up of homemade pastries, tartines, sandwiches and grain bowls.
