Do you need to get a meal with your aunt and uncle who want to listen to you talk about all the things you’re currently doing (or not doing) with your life? Go to Cabana. It’s a Latin American restaurant with a bar up front and a little dining room in the back where there are bunch of tables covered in white tablecloths. The food is solid - they have everything from salad and ceviche to steak and empanadas - and despite the white tablecloths, it actually isn’t formal at all. Wear a t-shirt, and drink a pitcher of sangria.

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.
