MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Oaxaca by way of Gowanus? When it’s this seriously delicious, you bet. The small interior features a wood-fired oven, bar, a smattering of tables and a garden, and the service is bright and friendly, but the real draw is their excellent Oaxacan dishes. Some are rendered true to their classical roots while others are spun with creative riffs. Barbacoa is a point of pride in this kitchen, which only cooks so much of it daily, so plan to get here early. Savory barbacoa tacos are then laced with spicy green salsa and paired with a bowl of soulful consommé. Other high points include tender seared octopus with bacon and pickled chilies piled onto tortillas. Don’t forget about the humble black beans though, as they boast a delicious combination of smoke and heat.
