NEW YORK CITY — Eateries new to the city's food scene include a Lower East Side cafe that has introduced the Creffle — a waffle, crepe and eggette — and a West Harlem seafood restaurant with river views.

Here are six new bars, restaurants and cafes to try this weekend:

Tacuba at 35-01 36th St. in Astoria

A Mexican eatery where cocktails are slurped out of pineapples opened in Queens. Chef Julian Medina, who is behind Manhattan restaurants Toloache and Yerba Buena, is behind Tacuba, which sticks to Medina's eclectic menu style with dishes such as shrimp dipped in a watermelon barbecue sauce.  

New Santa Ana Restaurant at 187 Irving Ave. in Bushwick

A well-priced Mexican restaurant has opened up shop in Bushwick. New Santa Ana Restaurant has burritos, seafood, burgers and fajitas with prices from $2.50 to $15.95.

156 Tex Mex Mexican Restaurant at 156 Knickerbocker Ave. in Bushwick

A sushi chef and new mother has opened a Japanese restaurant in Jackson Heights. Angela Juo, 29, is the owner of Okawa and will be behind the sushi counter rolling sushi with menu items such as the "American Dream," which features batter-fried whitefish and crab.

Creffle Café at 115 Stanton St. on the Lower East Side

A new recipe that combines a Belgian waffle, French crepe and Chinese eggette is the inspiration for the new Creffle Café. Owner Al Tak described the Creffle as "crispy on the outside [and] it's light and fluffy on the inside." Customers can eat the dessert either plain or with toppings like whipped cream, fruit and chocolate.   

BTH at 712 W. 125th St. in West Harlem

A new seafood restaurant stocking purified oysters, crab legs, lobster tail, jumbo shrimp and mussels has opened in West Harlem. BTH combines the seafood with Caribbean and Mediterranean flavors.
