- Good for Kids
From Justin Bazdarich, the chef behind Speedy Romeo, the eclectic pizza spots in Bed Stuy and the Lower East Side, comes this Michelin-starred Mexican restaurant in Greenpoint. The design, with its crisp, white decor, light-flooded room, and plenty of hanging plants, whisks you to a sunny locale on the West Coast. The cooking, too, transports. Shaped by Bazdarich’s frequent trips to Mexico, the menu showcases his passion for wood-fired cooking. From the smoke-tinged cherry tomatoes nestled within the guacamole to the meltingly tender lamb barbacoa tacos, all the dishes are bright and balanced. The bar program is no slouch, but it’s the classic margarita – each sip is bracing and confidently citrus-forward – that takes top billing.
