Pacifico Restaurant Review

: Just a block from the Smith Street fray in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, Pacifico brings a bit of authentic Tex-Mex to the borough. Much of the decent-size menu is comprised of the “taco stand” and we recommend the “yardbird” filling---a blend of dark meat from both turkey and chicken. If you’re not in a taco mood, the appetizers offer some interesting choices, like mussels steamed in green chili tortilla broth with leeks and oven-dried tomatoes, and main courses include traditional pork carnitas chile relleno with dried fruit and served with black bean chilaquiles, and roasted portobello mushrooms under a blanket of mole poblano with grilled summer squash, chile marinated cherry tomatoes, chipotle flatbread and goat cheese. The margaritas are potent and authentic, but Pacifico’s real draw is the outdoor patio space, which is leafy and bigger than most New York City apartments.
