From a brick-lined interior where just a few tables and a long bar accent the cave-like space, El Born lives up to its namesake, a hip Barcelona neighborhood that owner Elena Manich says has many similarities to the restaurant’s home in Greenpoint. Opened with chef Diego Gonzalez (Socaratt Paella Bar) at the helm, El Born emphasizes Catalonian inspired tapas, as well as sizeable main dishes like a crispy calamari sandwich or the ever-classic Spanish tortilla. Whether you go for brunch, happy hour, lunch or dinner, there are plenty of specialties and classics to choose from, and there’s always a glass—or pitcher—of sangria waiting.
What a place lacks in ambiance, it can certainly make up for in simplicity. Enter Good Move, a small, basic watering hole that offers a full cocktail list and an authentic international flair that emphasizes fresh ingredients and flavor above all. Sit along the bar and try one of their signature cocktails, which include fresh juices and healthful ingredients like carrot juice and aloe liqueur. If mezcal is your thing, you’ll love the constantly rotating small batch selection. If you like tacos, even better; the menu is inventive and pays homage to classics, from the fried fish and ginger marinated steak tacos to the ever-popular al pastor featuring pineapple.
