Gran Electrica had been my go to restaurant for dinner before Theater at near by St Ann’s Warehouse but It’s losing a bit of it’s magic as the competition in the area heats up. I’ve always found the tacos and margaritas a winning combination and...More

Noisy, trendy, crowded, yet the staff remains very friendly and smiling. Delicious South American food, with tasty -hot - new flavors. Try the seafood dishes, they’re out of this world. Reasonable prices for Dumbo: probably around 30$/head all included.

Seven of us stopped in for lunch while visiting the nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park. Fish tacos for most of us, 'Fair-to-good' variety of reviews by those of us who had them. Chips were probably the poorest I've ever had in a restaurant. Small, not particularly...More

I gave 2 stars only because of the nice wait staff and cute outdoor setting. Otherwise, it was AWFUL. The guacamole tasted like it was out of a jar, the salsa tasted like cold tomato sauce, and the chips had no flavor. The ground beef...More

I completely agree with Jellyabroad--"why wait in line for basic pizza when you can come here?" We discovered this place by accident because we refused to wait in those goofy lines and walked into this little gem! Immediately you hear this great music, see this...More
