Mole Restaurant Review

: This Williamsburg outlet of Mole is lodged near the river where high-rise condos are creating a skyline for the neighborhood. The interior, though, feels anything but new: brick walls and wood floors (reclaimed from rural Pennsylvania) create a homey, rustic vibe, perfect for that smoky, slightly spicy margarita or a citrusy michelada. The menu is extensive and not for the indecisive. Start with the creamy guacamole, made fresh tableside, before moving on to cochinita pibil, a Yucatan-style pork dish that comes with black beans and tortillas. Skirt steak, cut into strips and accompanied by lime, cilantro and jalapeño, is a refreshing take on a usually filling entrée, and don’t dismiss anything made with mole poblano. Be sure to save room for the caramely flan to end the meal on a dolce note.
