The decor at this Greenpoint eatery seems to be modeled after a Midwestern hunting retreat: A forest-green sloped ceiling creates a cozy vibe, while wood paneling and brick walls lend rustic charm. It’s all the more surprising when you consider the food: highly inventive, artfully presented, Latin American small plates (at affordable prices). Begin with a palate-cleansing scallop ceviche coated in a sweet-potato puree. Then move on to pink slivers of shaved veal tongue with cool crema fresco, seared chicken livers and thighs in a decadent peppercorn-and-red-wine reduction, and chicharrónes piled in a bowl smeared with white-bean puree. Wash it all down with a pisco sour. No, make it two pisco sours.
