For All Things Good
Where we've featured it
Mushroom Mezcal Tlayudita
“I hate to break it to you, but Mexico’s native corn varieties are going extinct in the face of genetically modified yellow sweet corn (which I absolutely bought from Foodtown this summer). For All Things Good, a very lovable new Mexican cafe on a corner in Bed-Stuy, uses only heirloom corn that they nixtamalize themselves to make masa. The result is the best tortillas I’ve had in NYC. I tried the colorful tetela trio and the squash blossom quesadilla, but the absolute standout was the mezcal mushroom tlayudita. I hope to start another day soon with the very same crispy tortilla layered with beans, cheese, and a pleasantly chaotic fistful of hen of the woods mushrooms.”

The name ‘For All Things Good’ might ring a bell if you’ve seen any of the pop-ups this Oaxacan spot has done at restaurants like Dame NYC in the West Village. Now, the people behind it have opened a cafe in Bed-Stuy where you can get dishes like tetelas, memelas, and tlayudas. All of the tortillas here are made with fresh masa that’s been ground in-house, and you can try them everyday except Monday at their sidewalk patio on Franklin Avenue.
