Bar San Miguel

Behind a large, almost Medieval looking, wooden door, you’ll find a cozy, dimly lit Mexican restaurant with lots of calaveras throughout. I visited  Bar San Miguel in Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn for dinner.

To drink, I ordered the Aldama (Jalapeño infused tequila, Avocado, Lime, Agave nectar, Green Chartreuse). Right off the bat, the fact that this drink had jalapeño tequila and avocado caught my attention. And, it definitely delivered. It has a really nice kick, followed by a slight sweet and smooth finish from the avocado and agave.

To start, we had Guacamole y Totopas (house made chips with guacamole). The chips were nice and crisp, and the guac was thick with zesty pieces of tomato and onion.

For my entree, I got their Fried Fish Tacos (with red onion and cherry tomato salsa). I really enjoyed these. The tortillas were warm and soft, yet still substantial enough to hold the weight of the fish and all its accouterment. The fish had a crisp batter, with a flavorful, flakiness to the meat.

The Shorts:
Name: Bar San Miguel
Location: 307 Smith Street, Brooklyn
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure. The atmosphere is really cozy and warm and the food is tasty.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Perfect if you want to just grab a drink at the bar, or enjoy a meal at a table. Even though the cold weather is approaching, they have an outdoor patio in the back. So, remember that when Spring hits.
