I have walked by this space for quite some time and saw it was finally opened for business. It's Latin small plates and there were many items on the menu that just sounded amazing and new. I've been twice already and plan to be back soon. I must say the artwork and theme of the restaurant is especially unique. There is a graffiti version of the Brooklyn Bridge on the front wall and graffiti on the back wall. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff are extremely friendly. The bartender I spoke with was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the drinks and food. By far, my favorite drink was the Cielito. Probably one of the best tequila drinks I've ever had. At my first visit, I ate the piononos to start and followed that with the sliders. I have to say the shrimp piononos were simply wonderful. Probably one of the best shrimp dishes I have ever had in Brooklyn, if not my life. The sliders were great too. It came with a sauce and grilled onions that put it over the top. Really awesome. For my second visit, I had the oyster ceviche and sliders.. First, I have to say that I had never seen oyster ceviche on a menu. Then when I saw it, the presentation was so striking. The oysters are served in the shell and are absolutely delicious. I would say the best ceviche I have ever had. The sliders were amazing the second time around. I'm so happy to have this restaurant in the neighborhood. It's fresh, different, and the food/drinks are delicious. Did I mention they have a drink with rose petals?
