Habana Outpost
Open seasonally (beginning in the spring), solar-powered Habana Outpost is unlike any other restaurant in NYC: Its initiatives include rainwater flush toilets and the use of sugarcane and corn utensils. While the food—well-executed rice and beans, grilled Mexican quesadillas—is reason enough for a visit, on weekends little ones can also partake in supervised, eco-friendly projects.

this place has good summer vibes written all over it. the outdoor area in the back is great—although it gets super crowded when they have movie screenings. the sandwiches are great and it's a nice place to drop by after catching a show at BAM nearby.

I love it here! Habana Outpost is right in the center of Fort Greene and conveniently located right next to the G train. It's so colorful! Also, you have to check out the renowned eco-friendly bathroom when you go—it’s pretty creative. I think the food is great (tacos and corn with cotija cheese is a no-brainer), but the atmosphere is definitely a huge contributing factor to the draw of this place. There's a huge outdoor seating area where there’s sometimes outdoor movies. They played Thelma and Louise this summer! Also, this is a perfect place to take a big group of people—you can really spread out at a picnic table.


I really wanted to be a super fan of this place,  but unfortunately the experience was just OK nothing stellar.  The drinks were a couple dollars more than I expected but nonetheless they were good.  $10 will get you a flavored margarita or Mojito. In my opinion the drinks are better when the frozen part has melted away.  Habana outpost drinks can be real creepers so be careful lol. For food, I ordered the hamburger which was actually really delicious and freshly made.

The outside seating is really cool and bright and inviting.  Habana is located in a really cool area in Brooklyn. The way Habana works inside is that you wait online to order your food, pay, and once your food is ready you look on the screen that shows your receipt number and go out to the food cart in the back seating area and get your meal. 

The ambiance and environment at Habana is very inviting and laid back. I will definitely come back here to try and see what all the super hype about this place is  because I didn't see it the first time.
