Greenpoint Food Watch: Mexican Comes To Franklin!

The one thing I constantly crave but have the damnedest time finding is a honest-to-god, no frills “home style” cheese enchilada. You know the type: red sauce, cheese, lots of onions and little else? Well, I usually schlep to Manhattan for this fare but that may very well become a thing of the past.


Some of you might have noticed activity at Casa Mon Amour’s old space at 162 Franklin Street. Well, I was commenting about it to the Mister on my cell phone when a gentleman overheard me and said something that was music to my ears:

It’s going to be a Mexican restaurant.

Needless to say when I got home I headed over to Community Board 1’s web site without delay to verify this. He’s correct:

  2. Oh frabjous day! Now hopefully they’ll know how to make a good, honest, no frills bean burrito (beans, red sauce, cheese, a little onion and nothing else). I swear they’re hard to find here, and even requesting them brings puzzled looks, “you don’t want chopped zucchini and sauteed spinach in that?” NO! No, I do not.

  4. Oh and I had a damn fine cheese enchilada at La Nortena (formerly Tacos and More) a couple of weeks ago.

  6. Ok well forget it, me and the bf ordered the same stuff from La Nortena tonight and it’s as if we ordered from a completely different (awful) place. We were dumbfounded.

Tell me what you're thinking...
