We love the neighborhood of Fort Greene and everything that is part of it!
Our neighbor restaurant called Colonia Verde is a great Latin American (specifically Brazilian and Mexican) inspired restaurant that just recently started opening for lunch!
The decor is extremely welcoming and rustic (just like we adore), great natural light and a great secret under the radar outdoor area in the back - perfect for the beautiful NY days!
They use fresh locally sourced ingredients and definitely work in teaching the social aspects of eating…like every good, typical, latin restaurant does, for sure!
We were there yesterday and had the most amazing time and experience.
What we ordered?
- Quesadillas de Rajas with roasted poblano peppers, caramelized onions, Chihuahua cheese in flour tortillas
- Steak Salad with mixed greens, sliced tomatoes, onions, balsamic dressing and an 8oz hangar steak
- Grilled Veggie Sandwich with grilled veggies with melted mozzarella and a smokey paprika and jerez dressing, served with french fries or salad
Take a look:
Simply delicious and extremely tasty!!!!
We skipped dessert this time, but we die for their Churro Doughnuts!!!
We’ve eaten there other times and ordered their Brazilian cheese bread, called Pão de Queijo!
Our Founder, Fernanda (read about her here), is originally from Brazil and loves passing there to grab a couple cheese breads when she feels home sick!
Take a look at a few more dishes you can try:
They are opened now for bunch, lunch, dinner…and is a great place for drinks/cocktails with a full bar service!
Perfect spot to go with friends, family and even a super romantic, low-key date night!
Oh! You can see a few more information (here), where we interviewed the beautiful lifestyle, food and travel Instagrammer, Tamara Peterson, and she talks about her Top Picks in Fort Greene!
