This friendly place is on our regular circuit of lunch places. The food is always good, service is excellent. It's tiny, though. In summer you may get one of the very few outdoor tables.

The food is some of the best in the neighborhood, but they can keep you waiting! The price is right. Some of the best mole sauce I've found in Brooklyn.
