Ensenada in Williamsburg is celebrating coastal cuisine from Latin America. Led by Executive Chef/Partner Luis Herrera (Cosme, Blanca) and Owner Bryce David (who also owns Black Flamingo, which Ensendada sits above) is highlighting sustainably sourced seafood and an extensive rotating list of mezcals.
Inspired by the fresh fish markets of Mexico City and fish taco carts found throughout Baja California, Ensenada’s menu showcases ceviches (inspired by Peruvian + Mexican interpretations), fish and shrimp tacos served Ensenada-style, and large format entrees like Pescado Pastor meant for sharing and Pulpo “Mexican Hash.” The restaurant relies on sustainable fish suppliers, and fresh corn masa from the upcoming Williamsburg location of For All Things Good.
Cocktails from industry veteran Jorsand Diaz (previously Cosme) reflect recent travels to Oaxaca with mezcal and agave-based Margaritas, seasonal-leaning Palomas, and Ensenada’s take on a Mezcal Negroni. Micheladas and sangrita shots are also available.
The flatiron style space boasts a nautical theme with bright coastal energy. There is seating for up to 40 guests indoors and 12 at the bar. During warmer weather, visitors can also take advantage of outdoor seating.
Ensenada is located at 168 Borinquen Place Brooklyn NY (347) 335-0838
