Mohan, who trained under Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Burke before becoming chef de cuisine at Aquarella in Puerto Rico, offers a seafood-heavy menu with a Latin-by-way-of-New-England spin.

It’s served with one of LoLo’s classic johnnycakes slathered in honey butter, making it big enough for a small meal or as a perfect starter.
