Fodor's Expert Review Chavela’s

$$ Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights Mexican Fodor's Choice
Open Chavela’s wrought-iron doors and you’ll find a boisterous Mexican restaurant with a colorfully tiled bar, where diners order margaritas and micheladas by the pitcher. Pair your drink with the Plato Don (a substantial dish of steak, chicken, or veggies, plus rice, beans, guac, tortillas, pico de gallo, and queso fresco) or the especiales del día. Weekend brunch draws a crowd, so come during the week if you can, when the lunch specials are half-price and include egg dishes.
