Leyenda is a Latin cocktail bar from some of the people behind Clover Club, another high-end bar across the street in Carroll Gardens. Along with excellent cocktails, they do flights of mezcals, tequilas, and rums, and serve share plates like ceviche, enchiladas topped with thick mole, and different types of tacos. The dark space is best for dates, but we also like it for brunch with a group and late-night drinks on the back patio.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
