Palo Santo is not the kind of place a New Yorker discovers right away. This small restaurant is tucked away on a quiet Brooklyn block, almost hidden behind the street's greenery. Much of the space is constructed with reclaimed wood and salvaged materials, and we like the intricate mosaics in the open kitchen. This is where a more seasoned, refined New Yorker would go, after having all those trendy scenes and long brunch lines under his/her belt.
What to Eat
The $21 prix fixe includes two drinks, a coffee or tea, and an entree. We recommend the Huevos Banados with poached eggs, chile hollandaise, grilled bread, beans, and avocado. If you get the chance, tell them to bring back the Crack Corn. Yep, that was really the name of it. And it was amazing.
What to Drink
Not only does the $21 prix fixe include two mimosas, sangria or juice, refills of mimosas and sangria are only $1 each. That is not a typo! Just $1.
First come, first served. Brunch reservations are not accepted.
