    As noted in a recent post, underwhelming decor and some service issues, but sublime food and the owner and his wife could not be nicer.

          i know this is the manhattan board, but brooklyn has my stomach. my boyfriend and i stumbled on this place when he moved to the hood a few weeks ago. we've been at least once a week since.

          NAME: mojito loco, opened january 06.
          LOCATION: Meserole & Manhattan streets, in Williamsburg/Bushwick
          CUISINE: mostly peruvian, latin fusion
          SIZE: the size of my apartment. my one bedroom 400-sq. ft. apartment.
          AMBIANCE: laid back, chill, honest, colorful warm latin vibe without trying too hard. the three owners will come out and have a glass of scotch during slow hours, and ask your opinions about how to tweak the recipes.
          DINNER w.o booze: $30 for two entrees and two appetizers. go during happy hour and you get two drinks for the price of one ... the $10 fresh fruit mojitos are well worth it.
          FAVORITE DISH: nopalitos salad, mexican corn, peruvian ceviche (fried and crazy spicy) and chicken al carbon.
