Colonia Verde serves Latin American food in Fort Greene, and it’s ideal for a date night. The dimly-lit space reminds us of a well-decorated cave that sprawls back through a couple of rooms and a greenhouse, finally ending in a spacious garden decked out in string lights. As for the food, Colonia Verde’s menu ranges from Brazilian dishes like picanha served with farofa and a pão de queijo burger to Mexican-influenced tacos and mole. There’s plenty to share, so bring a date and sit in the backyard.
