Don’t you hate it when a place makes a half-assed effort to reinvent itself by throwing a few objets d’art on the wall and printing a new menu? This spot was home to down-at-the-heels Southern-food outpost Harvest. Now there are bull horns behind the bar and bright serapes on the walls, but that doesn’t make it Texan. On a recent evening, enchiladas were bland and stuffed with overcooked shrimp, with no hint of the promised chipotle-grilled flavor. Spanish rice was dry, and soft chicken tacos were loaded with iceberg lettuce and had that quickly assembled, fast-food taste. The best dish was chile con queso—it wasn’t particularly spicy, but melted cheese with crispy-salty chips is hard to screw up.

From the decor to the margs to the spread, Lobo is a solid dinner spot. I have a girl gang that regularly meets up for spicy skinny margs and as much guac as we can handle, and Lobo certainly provided. They have the kind of menu that begs for ordering a bit of this and that and then sharing as a table, and that's exactly what we did as we worked our way through a bottle of tequila.


The service was great. Attentive, without rushing us at all. The only hitch was that it's cash only, but they have an ATM upstairs. Can't wait for my next trip to the perfectly Brooklyn quaint neighborhood that is Cobble Hill, specifically Lobo.
