Looking to market ingredients and a pan-regional approach to Mexican cuisine, this stylish yet comfortable restaurant impresses with its lovely décor and lively vibe. Servers are engaged and enthusiastic about the menu’s pleasures. An ideal visit starts with a margarita at the bar and moves to the garden as strings of lights flicker to life. Mexico and Brooklyn are in balance on a menu that includes small plates such as memelitas con huitlacoche, filled with savory sautéed mushrooms and topped with creamy avocado. Flavors are bright in the deliciously untraditional poblano chile relleno stuffed with Havarti, roasted tomato-jalapeño salsa and tortillas. Carnitas tacos are tucked with chunks of crispy roasted Berkshire pork that simply bursts with flavor.
