TSISMIS (pronounced chis'mis) is introducing diners to elevated Filipino food. The restaurant on the Lower East Side is being offered as a gathering place to bring people, food and drink together. Chef Jappy Afzelius, who worked under Alain Ducasse, is offering a selection of small bites, called Pica Pica, that include fried pork dumplings with a sweet and spicy sauce, and sautéed shrimp with shishito peppers in an olive oil garlic butter sauce. Larger plates bring roast chicken in a tumeric-soy sauce, oxtail in a peanut-rice sauce with fermented fish paste, and a local delicacy made with angel hair pasta, lump crab meat and a crab fat sauce. Postres include Maja Blanca, a traditional coconut pudding made with sweet corn and purple yam barquillos (wafer rolls) using a recipe from chef Jappy's grandmother. A Chef's Tasting Menu features seasonal dishes with wine pairings and requires a reservation. >>
