    Pequena on South Portaland is a great little mexican place...good food, especially the fish tacos. It's small so there's often a wait. Afterwards head a few steps to the corner and have a drink or two at Moe's.

    If you're looking for something a little quieter or cosier, try the Stonehome on Lafayette...wine bar with food. I didn't eat anything when I was there, but the wine we had was great, and it was a very cozy atmosphere during the blizzard that was happening outside, not that you can visualize those conditions now!

      Check out Stoneholm, on Lafayette just east of South Elliott. They've got a great wine collection and a knowledgable wait staff (I'm a sucker for the dry cabernet sauvignon there). They've also got light fare. I usually get a panini, which isn't mind-blowing but it gets the job done. The wine is the main thing there.

        I ended up going to Habana Outpost. It was really good. I enjoyed it. I need to hang out in Ft. Greene more often.

          was the food any good? The one time I went by there it looked pretty minimal and unappealing.

            Loud, crowded, long waits...not worth it. You're better off going to Habana in the city.

            (Unless you're one of those Shake Shack types who digs the wait and eating outside in the dirt)

              I had the cuban. It was better than other versions I've had in the city. I'm sure better are out there, but I'd go back and order it again.

              My favorite was the grilled corn with queso fresco.

              six points drafts are only $2.50!!!! they also serve frozen mojitos, which i haven't seen or had before. I don't know if that is good or bad. They went down easy though.

              The lines are long and it was pretty crowded when I went (8:30ish).

              I really liked the atmosphere. It almost felt like a BBQ or party rather than a restaurant.

            Pequena is really delicious.. all their dishes come in an appetizer and dinner portion and their margaritas are the best!!

              Olea for light greek tapas, a reasonable wine list, and a gorgeous room.

                I may sound like a broken record, but Luz would fit this bill.

                Ici is probably your best bet.
