MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With a name like Gordo’s, you can be sure that portion size isn’t an issue. Of course, nobody is complaining, thanks to the talents of Chef Reyna Morales, who hails from Mexico City and whose careful handling of familiar favorites goes a long way.

In the case of tacos, black tiger shrimp arrive under a blanket of melted menonita cheese and are delicious both with or without the tortilla. For quesadillas, a layer of cheese is griddled into the tortilla and then served open-face, piled high with roasted poblanos and sweet corn. This Bushwick hangout also dishes out a satisfying mole, as seen in enchiladas stuffed with tender shredded chicken. Over-ordering is most likely; yet, you’ll probably leave with takeout boxes and that is a good thing indeed.
