    You're likely to find it between Marcy Avenue and Hewes Street on the J/M/Z line...but it likely won't beat a trip to Guavate.

      I seem to recall Hewes near Marcy being a mostly Orthodox neighborhood, so it's not the first place I'd think of for lechón. Any place in particular?

        It's Broadway, between Marcy & Hewes...still Latino community / restos there. You could also try out in Bushwick by the "L" train DeKalb Avenue station / Stanhope Street side...worth a walk around.

      El Bohio (791 East Tremont in the Bronx.) They have been doing Lechon forever.
