Gugu, urban slang for your object of affection, is the inspiration behind the Gugu Room on the Lower East Side. The Filipino-Japanese izakaya is also putting a Filipino twist on cocktails. The stylish space with maroon banquettes, Asian-style lamps and full bar is offering flavorful skewers and a lot more.

Look for things like Pork Harumaki, Japanese crispy rolls filled with pork and sweet chili sauce; Chicken Karaage with calamansi ginger aioli; Adobe Wings; and Blistered Shishito Peppers. Larger plates include Truffle Mushroom Sisig, Short Rib Udon with Bone Marrow, Spicy Tofu Steak with bock choy and Pan’Yaki Bronzino in jalapeno sauce. There are also Ebi tacos with rock shrimp or Kani with crab and fish cake.
