There’s not much quality Mexican food in Park Slope, but Fonda is a casual spot with entrees and cocktails we like, especially when sitting in their backyard. They also serve small plates and some tacos, but we prefer the large plates, like the chile relleno and the enchiladas in a dark mole. Unless you’re sitting at the bar for Happy Hour drinks and snacks, get a table in the backyard and try any of the eight margaritas.
