On Thursday, July 6, seeyabajo, an eclectic, intimate music venue, bar, and private event space beneath the existing popular eatery seeyamañana (49 West 27th Street), will expand its offerings of food and drink.

Never taking itself too seriously, seeyabajo’s design evokes the allure of a downtown dive bar. Every corner of the desert-inspired space offers an opportunity for exploration, with an approachable and eclectic mix of Baja California flea market art and mysterious swap meet finds.

Playful menus led by Executive Chef Carlos Chavarria will showcase the vibrancy of Baja Californian Mexican cuisine, with seasonal, vegetable-forward dishes, The new dinner menu (available both upstairs at seeyamañana and downstairs at seeyabajo, during events) includes small plates like the Brussel Sprout Tostada, Yellowtail Ceviche alongside heartier entrées like tacos and enchiladas. There will also be such new raw bar options as Hamachi Crudo, Baja oysters, and fresh lobster. Brunch offerings (now available daily) will include Breakfast Burritos & Tacos, Concha French Toast, and a Tijuana Style Caesar Salad.

Meanwhile, a new, elevated cocktail menu will include offerings like Trouble at Hussong’s (with mezcal, Madeira, dry vermouth, chili pepper, tajin, and lime), the Besame Mucho (a full-flavored horchata milk punch), and the Baja Bonfire (a luscious Bacanora sour with coriander and mango).
