Sneak Peek: Traif Sister Restaurant, Dubbed Xixa, Now in Soft Open Mode

A dimly-lit look at Xixa's booths
Sunday night we crashed a preview party at Xixa (pronounced "shiksa," which of course is slang for a non-Jewish woman), the upcoming Mexican-inspired spin-off from the owners of Traif, set right down the block on S. 4th St. in Williamsburg. The completely redone room (in the former Aldo's Coffee Shop) is sultrier than the original, while both the setup and the array of small bites – cheese-filled, deep-fried squash blossoms, sopes topped with foie gras and pineapple, an updated elote with Thai spice – seem poised to pull in the bar crowd (241 South 4th St.).
