Esperanto is a lively Latin fusion restaurant. We feature seasonal outdoor seating, live music, drinks, daily mouthwatering meals and weekend brunches. Esperanto is a unique representation of the cultures of Central and South America and the Caribbean. Experience the multi cultural charm of New York City with our exotic and authentic delectable plates and our craft cocktails. We take pride in our present and past, having served in the Lower East Side since 1999.
