My love for Pequena began when I moved to Fort Greene. It was just across the street and filled with Mexican tchotchkes, how could I resist? Here’s the deal – not everything is great, the servers can be snarly, and the place can get crowded. However, if you are patient, order a regular margarita and the plantain and black bean quesadilla, you will leave happy. The tostadas are also a win, but don’t bother with the chicken.
Pizza Paradiso – This place is solid. The pizza and the beer list are sure to please!
The Fainting Goat – I wanted to be more excited about this restaurant, food was okay.
Ted’s Bulletin – we went for the homemade pop tarts, I liked the donut better.
Oyamel – super Mexican spot, tasty food and modern decor
Bayou – Louisiana cooking, food was heavy, but overall good. If you like Abita, they have lots!
Batter Bowl Bakery – I got the sunny side egg dish and I left feeling hungry. If I spend $10 at breakfast, I should be full.
DC Brau – drink it!
I can’t say anything bad about Antique Taco. I’m in love with the place – the decor, food, everything about it makes me content. The food is delicious, honest, and simple. I haven’t gotten to the cheese curds just yet, but they are on my bucket list. They also have Half Acre beer, yielding oh so many points in my book!
On our way to Logan Airport and weary of the food, we opt for Rosa Mexicano. Seems like it has changed a bit since I last went a few years ago in New York, the portions are tiny. However, the service was friendly and it was certainly better than our airport dining choices would have been.
