Spotted On Leonard Street: Haab

Yesterday yours truly went on not one, but two walks. Why, you ask? Because I simply could not decide between going to Long Island City and knocking around one of my favorite streets: Grand. To this end I hustled out to Long Island City, looped back to Greenpoint for a quick restroom break and a glass of water and back out I went. It was at the intersection of Leonard Street and Grand Street that I spied with my Mexican food maven eye what you see above: Haab. Needless to say I entered this establishment without delay. I asked the very nice waitress and cook staff how long they have been open for business. The lattermost replied: “since Friday”. While the menu (which said waitress gave me— they do not have a take out menu— yet?) is hardly vegetarian friendly there are a few items to be had. And try them I will. If the staff I encountered today is in any way indicative of the quality of the food, methinks I am in for a real treat!

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:

Tacos And More Is Open!

Not only are they open for business, but tomorrow (December 27, 2008) they will be strutting free samples of their stuff! You can get a feel for their offerings here and here (no takeout menus yet— sorry— but be advised they are not very vegetarian friendly— needless to say vegan kibble is completely out of the question). Nonetheless I’d love to hear what you meat (and egg) eaters have to say!
