This is the East Village location of a good Park Slope Mexican restaurant. Like the original, it’s also a great place to eat quality Mexican food with your friends. There’s no backyard here, but when the weather is nice, there’s some sidewalk seating out front. Keep in mind that this spot tends to get busy during brunch, so you should probably make a reservation.
Fonda is permanently closed.
