Good Move is a little spot in Greenpoint that’s basically just a small bar and a few tables, Weezer playing on the stereo, and some very solid tacos. There isn’t much atmosphere, but there is a full list of cocktails, so we’d recommend it if you’re in the neighborhood and dining solo. Order some tacos (we like the al pastor and the fried fish) and a drink at the bar, and repeat as necessary.

21 Greenpoint is a great neighborhood spot that’s not just a consolation prize if you can’t get into Paulie Gee’s across the street.
To some people, Achilles Heel is a bar. But we think it’s one of the best restaurants in Greenpoint. Bring a date, sit by the fire, and eat something.

La Esquina Cafe & Taqueria
La Esquina may not be the most authentic Mexican in town, but it is one of the few establishments to properly spin everything we love about NYC restaurants into a taco.
Claro is a great Oaxacan-inspired restaurant that’s even better when you’re sitting in the backyard.
Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.

We feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t have a Paulie Gee’s in their ‘hood or in their city as an option for excellent Neapolitan pies.
Tortilleria Los Hermanos
Down the street from the L train Jefferson stop in Bushwick, you'll find the a garage serving some of the city’s best tacos.
When a Mexican restaurant you love tells you to eat at another Mexican restaurant, you listen. That’s how we discovered Acapulco Deli, and you should discover it too.
