Pequena: Appealing to the Pallet and to the Pocket

Resting on the corner of Bergen and Vanderbilt, along Prospect Heights' bourgeoning eatery avenue, is Pequena, a Mexican gem as appealing to the palate as it is to the pocket.

Pequena opened in June 2010, replacing Barrette bar, and is owned and operated by the same brownstone Brooklyn restauranteurs behind popular Ft. Greene locales Moe's Bar, Olea, Maggie Brown and Pequena's South Portland Avenue sister location.

The colorful barrage of rustic Mexican paintings and dangling Dia de los Muertos dolls adds authenticity to the ambiance, fostering an intimate yet boisterous atmosphere. With roughly 20 seats available for dining and a petite, full-service bar, the name Pequena is absolutely apropos. That's a good thing.
