Jose and Giovanni Ventura—the brothers behind Casa Ventura—ply locavore tacos and organic sangria at this bright Park Slope nook. A chalkboard touts seasonal ingredients: carrots and onions from Dagele Brothers Produce in Florida, NY; honey and eggs from upstate's Finster Honey Farms. The menu is divided into two sections: Mexican-style street tacos (braised beef tongue with radish; pork with sour orange and achiote), and more eclectic tacos, such as roasted beets with queso fresco or jerk tiger shrimp with mango-mint salsita and pineapple slaw. Along with the tacos, the brothers whip up Latin American staples like tortas, tostadas, ceviche and enchiladas. Grab a cherrywood stool at the marble-topped bar for house-made chips and roasted tomato salsa to accompany a cold one; cervezas also skew local, with Captain Lawrence Pale Ale and Brooklyn Brewery Lager on tap. Meanwhile, sangrias come in seasonal flavors: strawberry, peach-and-grape and toasted coconut.
