Mezcal's Restaurant Review

: The Mezcal's mini-chain brings the complex cuisine of Mexico's Puebla region to Park Slope, Bay Ridge and Brooklyn Heights. Overlook the bland standards and opt for zesty sautéed shrimp and garlic in a white wine, roasted poblano chile and green sauce or sizzling teco lindo fajitas topped with cheese, chicken, chorizo, zucchini, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, snow peas and pico de gallo. For dessert, don't pass up the bola de fuego, deep-fried ice cream balls.
