The simple tavern—outfitted with patterned wallpaper and a massive, seven-foot-long crystal chandelier—sports a traditional menu of tapas and shareable plates. Expect 16 house-made salsas and dishes like tostada de pulpo (octopus with spicy chipotle sauce on a crispy shell) and corneta pato (a long crispy taco stuffed with duck confit). Serious sippers, take note: Twenty-five artisanal, small-batch tequilas and mescals (including Pierde Almas and Antiguo Herradura) are on display behind the large oak bar, which also features six South of the Border beers on tap.
The best kept secret in Williamsburg. Stay awhile.
