El Atoradero, Brooklyn, NY

El Atoradero Restaurant Review

: A popular Bronx import to Prospect Heights, El Atoradero serves up satisfying south-of-the-border fare in a diminutive and casual space. Tuck into a bowl of soul-soothing pozole or an enchilada drenched in tangy mole poblano sauce. The original spot became legendary for its carnitas tacos, and the Brooklyn outpost is no different; unctuous and flavorful, they should put El Atoradero on the Big Apple’s Mexican food map. At the weekend brunch, don’t miss the breakfast torta, which is crammed with a beautiful blend of chorizo, egg, potatoes and black beans. There are only a few subpar wines available, so stick to Mexican beers and you can’t go wrong.
